As a public charter school in Lake County educating over 1,000 students in kindergarten through 8th grade, we are committed to helping every student reach his or her full potential.
We strive to teach to the whole child, with a strong emphasis on character. We focus on each child and know that no two students learn the same. Together, it is vital that we partner in this mission – for without your support, we are not fully capable of reaching our potential as a community.
Imagine South Lake Charter is nationally-known for its character emphasis and was designated a National School of Character by the Character Education Partnership. Our school is also SACS accredited.

May 29, 2015: Parent Partnership Newsletter
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Help prevent the summer learning slide! Kids who stop reading and practicing math skills in the summer begin the school year with an achievement gap that can take months close! In the coming days, your child will be bringing home a suggested summer reading list for their grade level, and a summer math packet with projects and challenges. Incoming 6th-8th graders will have a required summer reading project. Cooper Memorial Library visited our classrooms this week with information on their summer reading challenge. Please be on the lookout for our summer reading and math challenges.
Students who complete either the summer reading challenge from Cooper memorial, or the summer math challenge from out school, will be invited to an ice cream party in September. There will be a special treat for those who complete both challenges.
If you are looking for summer tutoring, and even greater help closing the achievement gap, please contact our office. Thank you for partnering with us!

Imagine Schools Academic Framework
As part of the Imagine Schools family, Imagine South Lake Charter is embracing the new Academic Framework, which will serve as our roadmap for stronger academic growth. This plan embraced at every level of the organization. Setting high expectations for every student means setting high expectations for every Imagine person at each campus, regional office, and national office. This effort will require increased focus, collaboration, innovation, and accountability. Learn how each stakeholder is part of this plan and contributes to our success. Click here to read the Imagine Schools Academic Framework.
Support your students and teachers by contributing to specific classroom projects. Many teachers at Imagine South Lake Charter have posted classroom needs on DonorsChoose.org. On this website, you can safely contribute to projects that will benefit the classroom. Donorschoose.org is a 501(c)3 non-profit, which also means that all donations are tax deductible.
What types of projects are teachers requesting? Computers, iPads, BrainPop access, educational games, hokki stools, books, and more! You can help our teachers educate students by adding these resources to the classroom.
Visit the Imagine South Lake DonorsChoose.org page today to find out which teachers need your help today! New projects are added each week!
Student E-Reader Policy
With technology moving at an extremely rapid pace, we are piloting a program that will allow students to bring personal electronic devices to be used as eReaders, such as iPads, Kindles, or Nooks to school for the sole purpose of meeting English Language Arts reading requirements. Please click here to read the eReader Parent Letter, student guidelines, and permission slip.
Come on in! Whether you are here to have lunch with your child, volunteer with the PTO, or help with a class project, we love having visitors. Before proceeding to your destination on campus, all visitors need to stop by the front office first to sign in. Please bring in your driver’s license on the first visit in order to be entered into our new check-in system. Signing in and signing out are important to the safety of our students, staff, and other visitors.
