Douglass Academy is an inspiring and progressive new charter school that opened in August, 2013. This tuition-free, open enrollment public elementary school is located at 507 North Sixth Street Wilmington, NC 28401. We are a replicate school mirroring the programs in place at Charter Day School in Leland and Columbus Charter School in Whiteville. Both of these model schools are widely recognized as compelling choices to conventional public education and are consistently the highest-scoring schools in their respective counties. The primary goal of Douglass Academy is to provide a safe and secure environment for students to be challenged daily to perform at high levels of achievement. The certified and highly qualified teaching staff is experienced in delivering proven curricula that produce high scores in the early grades. Douglass Academy is a uniform school, provides free breakfast and lunch to those who qualify, and operates on a traditional school calendar with extended hours from 8:00 AM - 3:30 PM.
