Dear Charter Oak International Academy Families,

I am grateful to serve as the principal of Charter Oak International Academy, the very place where my teaching journey began over twenty years ago. At Charter Oak, our collective efforts are focused on nurturing open-minded, compassionate, and engaged global learners who will actively contribute to a more peaceful and sustainable world. We will accomplish this by:

  • Developing global awareness and cultural competence through partnerships with families and the community.
  • Fostering positive self-concepts and cultivating peaceful relationships with others.
  • Cultivating curiosity and fostering an inquiry mindset.

Our commitment to consistent and transparent communication is of utmost importance. We wholeheartedly welcome and encourage your questions, ideas, and concerns as valuable contributions to our growing partnership. As a school community, we also invite you to volunteer and participate in a wide range of events, committees, classroom activities, and field trips held throughout the year. These opportunities allow our families to witness the remarkable achievements of our children and staff.

Lastly, I want to express my gratitude for entrusting us with your child's education. It is a responsibility we hold dear and will continue to fulfill with utmost dedication.

In Community,

Georgina Rivera
