The WOW & WONDER in Learning!
Welcome to the Elgin Math and Science Academy Charter School (EMSA), a public charter school where students and teachers reach their highest potential through active exploratory learning and social responsibility!
The Elgin Math and Science Academy Charter School is a diverse and dynamic EL Education (eleducation.org) community dedicated to fostering each child’s unique potential through exemplary standards of character, academic achievement, and social responsibility.
EMSA brings the Wow & Wonder of Learning to students through a STEM public charter school. Our educational approach benefits children of all backgrounds, engages parents, community leaders and experts in support of student learning. Students dive deep into field work, project-based learning, and service through critical thinking, problem solving and teamwork.
On October 3, 2017, the Illinois State Charter School Commission voted to grant the appeal of EMSA’s Charter School Proposal.
A big thank you also goes out to all of the EMSA volunteers, supporters, families, and design team who helped to bring the WOW & WONDER of EL Education to area families!
