Allegro Charter School of Music prepares students in grades 6-12 for the pursuit of creative work in any field, using music as a medium to inspire and foster creativity, coupled with a strong academic program.
The vision of the school is aligned with the purpose of the SC Charter School Act to “create new, innovative, and more flexible ways of educating children within the public school system, with the goal of closing achievement gaps between low performing student groups and high performing student groups.”
Catholic Partnership Schools, Camden, NJ

Their goal is to provide a Safe, Loving and Achieving environment, where students are encouraged to find their path forward.
