Benton Harbor Charter School Academy is an educational community that teaches each child as an individual.

We are a tuition-free public school, serving children in grades preschool through eighth grade in the Benton Harbor, MI area. The classes are small, so the teacher has the chance to work one-on-one with the students. Discipline is strict, so parents know children learn in a safe environment. The academic standards are set high, so children can feel the challenge to reach their highest potential. Character development is a central part of the educational experience to prepare children for active, thoughtful, and caring participation in the world around them.

Staff Member

"Because I am a BHCS Academy team member and parent, I see both sides of this great school. I work with an amazing team of people. We have such a burning desire to see our children grasp everything possible so they can run with it. The hard work and dedication that everyone puts forth is amazing. Not often are you able to find such a large group of people who have such compassion for what they do."

Parent

“The greatest benefit is seeing the effect on my children. They have developed so much character and personality during the past two years at BHCS Academy. This school has made learning exciting for them and they are proud to say they attend BHCS Academy.”

Tiffany, Parent

“To me, Charter is something more than just a school- it’s a place where they take learning to another level. At BHCS Academy they treat everyone like family. As a parent, you will always know what is going on with your child, instead of just at conference time. I appreciate that.”

Erica, Parent

“What Charter means to my children and me is togetherness, caring, and structure. Most of all, Charter is a wonderful opportunity for learning.”
