Student Self-Efficacy

85% of Children's Aid College Prep Charter School students will achieve year -end grade level standard in Math and Literacy. 90% of students will score 3 or 4 self-efficacy related areas of the charter school's values-based behavioral rubric. If we strive for these goals then our students will be academically successful, motivated to learn and persevere in school and know how to “get smarter” and hold a “growth” mindset in all areas of his/her development (i.e. across all developmental domains.)
