About NUA

At National University Academy, we understand that every child has unique personalities and learning abilities—that’s what makes them so special! Our diverse programs are tailored to meet the needs of each student—academically, socially, and emotionally. No two students are the same, so why would we teach them that way?

National University Academy (NUA) consists of public, tuition-free K-12 charter schools with specialized programs, including: Sparrow (K-8), Independent Study (6-12), 1001 STEAM (6-12), and Dual-Language (K-8). We also provide K-8 Homeschool curriculum and support for parents.

Vision

At NUA, we strongly believe that all students are unique and capable learners
who, through positive educational experiences, can reach their maximum
potential and become successful global citizens.

All National University Academy charter schools share the same core values of Innovation, Opportunity, Achievement, Collaboration, and Flexibility. Teachers embrace these values and provide a nurturing and supportive learning environment for all students.

Mission

National University Academy programs are dedicated to creating learning
opportunities that are accessible, challenging, and relevant to a diverse
population of students.

NUA provides innovative 21st century learning environments through
comprehensive programs. Programs feature a unique combination of
independent study with resource center and online support designed to prepare
students for the future.

“We have really enjoyed being a part of the NUA homeschool program. We’ve loved the accountability and services it provides to families. It’s been a great experience!”
