Our Mission and Plan

Clarksdale Collegiate opened in the fall of 2018 with 150 students in kindergarten, first, and second grades. We will add one grade level each year after to ultimately serve students in kindergarten through 8th grade. Students in Clarksdale, Coahoma County, and adjacent counties within the Mississippi Delta are eligible to attend.

By following a slow growth model shown to be most effective in launching and growing with quality from day one, Clarksdale Collegiate will grow from serving 150 K-2 students to serving 675 K-8 students.

Clarksdale Collegiate Public Charter School prepares kindergarten through 8th grade students in the Mississippi Delta to excel in high school and college by providing rigorous instruction within a structured, ambitious, and jubilant school community.
