About Us

The Elgin Math and Science Academy Charter School (EMSA) is a decade-long dream of community members to open a K-8 elementary school that brings science and math to life for students in Elgin, Illinois and surrounding communities. Our mission is for students and teachers to reach their highest potential through active exploratory learning and social responsibility. Partnered with EL Education (eleducation.org), we are currently in our planning year, officially opening in August 2018, when EMSA will expand the idea of what deeper learning can look like.

The Elgin Math and Science Academy is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) with a local Board of Directors composed of area stakeholders including educators, business leaders, and parents of students.
