Family Fun Nights

Children and parents enjoy evenings of fun through activities that bring all of our families together.


Since 1997 with the opening of the Achievement Academy Charter School, we have held a yearly graduation ceremony for each child that leaves the Academy. With each of our graduates dressed in their blue caps and gowns, we bid a bittersweet good-bye as they will always have a special place in our hearts.
