History
Founded in 1997, Somerset Academy opened its’ first school in Miramar, Florida, with a population of just 50 students in grades Kindergarten through Five. The multi-age, multi-level classrooms were the basis for the Somerset Academy elementary school philosophy and concept and have proven to be a successful innovation.

Opening as an affiliate of the Somerset System, a SACS-CASI accredited institution, Somerset Academy of Las Vegas will implement the same best practices and commit to meet the same standards and quality indicators, which make them eligible to pursue and receive accreditation from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). Such commitment to implement best practices and quality standards have proven effective in raising student achievement annually for all student populations.

The proposed School is a replication of the Somerset Academy Charter School Instructional Model, which has yielded over 20 high performing charter school programs in grades K-12 throughout the states of Florida and Texas. Somerset Academy has developed a multi-tier system (management, assessment and instruction and professional development) that integrates technology within the core curriculum and achieves increased performance across all student populations and subgroups.

Somerset Academy has been able to implement unique and innovative strategies aimed at student achievement and has proven these strategies to be successful with all student populations. Thus, having the combination of experience and a demonstrated track record of success with its programs, Somerset Academy will thereby assist Somerset Academy of Las Vegas to promote increased student achievement for the students it expects to serve.
