CHARETTE

Charette High School

Urban Planning /Historic Preservation High School

Charette is a blended learning environment, using the Summit Learning Program in its college prep program. Our themes of Urban Planning and Historic Preservation are the way in which Charette students engage the community and learn to become participants in civic affairs and problem solvers and critical thinkers. Charette is not a school specifically designed for students who want to become architects or planners. We’d like it if that passion was fostered by Charette, but we’re realistic. Any student who wants a four-year college prep high school experience in a dynamic environment will love Charette. The theme of urban planning and historic preservation will get our students into the community and they’ll be working on cool projects as a regular part of their school day and experience!

What are we about?

Something exciting is happening in Providence, Rhode Island. In September of 2018 a small, safe, and supportive charter high school opened its doors to 84 students in the 9th and 10th grade. Last year the school expanded to a full four-year high school with grades 9-12. Drawing applicants only from Providence, Charette High School was born from a love of the city. The themes of urban planning and historic preservation will be a vehicle to understand how Providence’s future will be shaped while its past respected.
