Memphis Merit Academy- bring an excellent educational option to Memphis

This petition had 303 supporters

OUR MISSION | Through rigorous academics, high quality instruction, and character development Memphis Merit Academy Charter School educates students in kindergarten through eighth grade for success in high school, college, and life.

While Memphis has experienced some progress in the academic growth of students and the development of high quality school options for families, unfortunately, this has not reached all  people and neighborhoods. Memphis Merit Academy looks to change that narrative by providing an excellent, college preparatory education for the students and families of Memphis. 

Proposed Lead Founder, Lakenna Booker, is a proud Memphian who is currently a fellow with the national non-profit organization, Building Excellent Schools. This fellowship has allowed her to study the best practices of the highest-performing charter schools across the country. Memphis Merit Academy understands where the bar is set nationally, and will bring that same level of high expectations and achievement to Memphis.
