We are managed by ACCEL Schools, a high performing network of over 80 charter schools located throughout the United States.

All students benefit from educational technology including classrooms outfitted with Smartboards, 1:1 Chromebooks, and more. Campuses feature facilities such as libraries, science and computer labs, art and music rooms, and outdoor fields and playgrounds to allow students the optimal environment for personal and academic growth (facility offerings vary by campus).

Constellation Schools’ youngest learners benefit from small class sizes and nurturing instruction where academics are balanced with life skills and character education. Students develop strong reading and language arts skills and build foundational mathematics abilities that form the basis of their success in the upper grades. They explore social studies concepts in a collaborative environment with sensitivity to cultural difference. Hands-on, small group learning is fundamental to our science program. In addition to core academics aligned with Ohio standards, students participate in character education, social-emotional learning, PE, and Art and Music programs.
