Choosing FBR Public Charter Academies for Your Child

“The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled.” ~ Chinese proverb

You want the best for your kids, and their education.

Finding the right environment to pursue individual academic growth, ensure their well-being, and offer the best tools to succeed in life is essential. FBR Public Charter Academies offers free public schooling with five convenient locations in Southwest Michigan: Augusta, Battle Creek, Comstock, Kalamazoo, and Portage.

At FBR Academies, the focus is on effective instruction in a safe, enthusiastic, and award-winning environment. Classes are full-day to maximize learning for students, but kids won’t feel like they are stuck sitting in a desk the entire day.

Teachers cultivate student creativity through art, music, and movement. Alongside core subjects, children learn music, art, gym, character education, library skills, and technology concepts.

With smaller class sizes, double the teaching staff, a carefully planned curriculum, and parental involvement – all students have an opportunity to reach their personal best.

Perfect for Kids, and for Parents Too

One factor many parents evaluate when it comes to educational opportunities is smaller class sizes.

FBR Public Charter Academies makes this happen, utilizing classroom paraprofessionals to assist the certified classroom teacher. A small student-teacher ratio allows educators the room to provide individualized instruction for each student, as well as those challenges that kids need in order to grow.

Parents don’t sit on the sidelines at FBR Public Charter Academies either.

They are encouraged to be active participants in their children’s education through various avenues:

  • Volunteer in the classroom
  • Communicate with teachers and the Academy through detailed questionnaires, ensuring that everyone is on the same page
  • Receive a Weekly Student Progress Report so they know exactly what their child has been learning, and have opportunities to reinforce that learning at home
