As you can see there is MUCH work to be done!!  The staff at Your Destiny Academic Academy have developed a program that leads to academic success for  East Charlotte students.  The staff report that 98% of the students enrolled at Your Destiny Academic Academy are on the A/B honor roll.   This is certainly a stark contrast to the CMS reported EOG scores.  
Parents of local East Charlotte CMS schools can find out more about this program at the Your Destiny Academic Academy Webpage.  They offer a variety of academic support eviroments including an  before and afterschool programs, summer camp and tutoring.
