Transforming Lives Charter School is a Public School that seeks to prepare students to be college and career ready beyond graduation. We will do this by offering strong academics with an emphasis on college and career exploration in a safe and caring learning environment. We will be serving grades 7-12.

Teachers, students and parents work together to provide guidance in academic and career goal achievement. We offer small class sizes with individualized instruction and hands on training to develop skills needed for the next generation of college and career readiness.
