Message from the Principal

Andrea Surratt, Building A PrincipalHello, and welcome to the webpage for the Camden Community Charter School. As Principal for the school, it is my privilege to be serving the young men and women of Camden. Like the rest of our staff, I wake up every morning encouraged by their spirit and ambition, and with a commitment to see them succeed here, in future academic endeavors and in life.

Camden Community Charter School currently has 700 students in kindergarten through sixth grade. We are based in a brand-new, state of the art school building with a separate, brand-new gym. Both buildings are on a pristine and secure gated campus on Linden Street between 8th and 9th Streets. Each of our classrooms features a SmartBoard™ and an iPad cart with an iPad for every student. Additionally, our computer lab features the most modern personal computers setup with specialized software to enhance the learning experience and prepare students for the digital world.

Our teachers are all New Jersey certified and we have teaching assistants with college degrees in each classroom, many of whom are on the road to teacher-accreditation. Camden Community Charter teachers use modern, data driven methods and curricula to help educate every student individually.

These are the building blocks we use to accomplish our mission, to empower students as learners. If you are a parent in Camden, I hope you will consider Camden Community Charter for your child’s education. If you are a community member interested in being a part of Camden’s renaissance, I look forward to working with you. Together, we can help the young men and women of Camden get the educations they need to lead Camden to a better, brighter future.

—Ms. Andrea Surratt
