Founded in 1999, Oglethorpe Charter School prides itself on being the first start-up charter school in the state of Georgia. The school opened in August of 1999 at the Pearl Lee Smith building, a vacant former elementary school on Stiles Avenue, with just under 200 students serving 6th and 7th grades. An eighth grade was added the following year. In 2004, the school changed its name to Oglethorpe Charter School. Another milestone was reached in 2012 when the school moved to its present state of the art facility at 7202 Central Avenue in Savannah, Georgia.
Today, the school’s dedicated professional faculty and staff proudly serve 600 students. The school continues to follow its mission: Partnering with parents and community to inspire students to pursue and achieve personal and educational excellence.
