Chatham Academy High School takes pride in supporting students who have a willingness to come back and put in the effort to learn and accomplish the goal of earning a diploma. Chatham Academy believes in second chances and provides the right mix of resources to create a safe and unique environment where students can thrive and achieve beyond their expectations. Our dual
enrollment program positions are students to continue their studies at a four year University. We will support you with a dedicated team of education professionals who have the knowledge and experience to assist you on your journey to a better future. They will get to know you and what your needs are, no matter what level of credit attainment that you have currently.
Academic Performance
School LevelLevel 2
This is the rating the school district gives to a school about how well they are performing. From highest performing to lowest performing, the possible levels are: Level 1+, Level 1, Level 2+, Level 2, and Level 3.
Freshman On Track(Not Available)
This is the percentage of the last 9th grade class that, based on their grades and attendance in 9th grade, is on track to graduate. Whether or not a student is on track during their freshman year is the biggest indicator of whether or not they will graduate from high school on time!
Average ACT Score(Not Available)
The ACT is a standardized test for high school achievement and college admissions that students take during their 11th grade year. This piece of information averages together the scores of the last 11th grade class at a school. The CPS average is 18.2.
Graduation Rates43%
This is the percentage of a group of students at a school that graduated within five years. The average in CPS is 69.9%.
College Enrollment Rates(Not Available)
College Readiness(Not Available)
This is the percentage of students at a school that scored at least a 21 on the ACT, which demonstrates a higher level of readiness to take college level courses.
School Culture
Student Mobility(Not Available)
The percentage of students that transfer in or out of the school during the school year. A higher percentage means that there are more students coming and going. Though it doesn’t tell us why students are transferring in and out, we can imagine that it could feel a little unstable if this is a high percentage.
Student Attendance79%
This is the average daily attendance at the school – on average, what percent of all the students enrolled at the school are in attendance. We don’t know why students may not be attending the school, but if this is a low number it is likely that teachers may have to spend more time reviewing material that absent students miss, making it harder to move forward in a class.
Teacher Attendance(Not Available)
This is the average daily attendance of teachers at the school – on average, what percent of all the teachers employed at the school are in attendance. As a student, it could be more challenging to make academic progress if you regularly have substitutes or don’t get to build a relationship with the teacher.
Involved Families: Does the school partner with families and communities?(Not Available)
Supportive Environment: Is the school safe and supportive with high expectations?(Not Available)
Ambitious Instruction: Is instruction focused, challenging and engaging?(Not Available)

Collaborative Teachers: Do teachers work well together and strive for excellence?(Not Available)
Safety: Do students feel safe in and around the school building and traveling to and from school?(Not Available)
School Fit
Avg Class size(Not Available)
This is the average number of students that is in each classroom. Use your current class as a reference point. Are you comfortable learning and contributing in a class this big? Would you prefer a class that has fewer students or more students?
Total Enrollment160
This tells us the total number of students that attend the school. Use your school as a reference point. Would you like a school that has fewer, more, or about the same number of students in your school?
Demographics
Black 98.8%
Hispanic 0.6%
Other 0.6%
This tells us about the racial and ethnic backgrounds of the students that attend the school. Is it important to you that there is diversity in your high school? Are you more comfortable being around other students that have a similar racial/ethnic background as you?
