IMAG Academy - a proposed public charter school
We're excited about the possibilities.
At capacity, IMAG Academy will be an engaging, place and project based learning environment for 600 students in grades K-12.
If we receive our charter approval in July 2018, we will open our doors in school year 2020-21 to 200 students in grades K - 7.
After many unforeseen opportunities in 2018
We are going to re-apply for a US DOE grant and Hawai'i state charter approval - Yes, We're Crazy
2018 has brought the IMAG Academy's Founding Board members several opportunities we did not foresee last year.
Due to changes in this year's application process and school opening timeline, the founding members have decided to re-apply to the
US Department of Education for another chance at the Charter School Program grant
and to the Hawai'i Public Charter School Commission for a public school charter.
