How We Started

Good things are often born of struggle, and our school is no different.  In late 2009, a group of parents concerned about the emphasis in the public schools began meeting to discuss starting a charter school that would emphasize traditional content that was taught using research-based curricula.  Our group continued to meet for the remainder of the year, and then in early 2010 we announced our intention to create the Frederick Classical Charter School.  The application for the charter school was submitted to the Board in the summer of 2010.  After several years of hurdles, in April 2012 the Board of Education approved our school to open in August 2013.  The exhausting years of effort and the many sacrifices made by our founding families inspired our motto--Nil Sine Magno Labore--nothing without great labor.
