Our Heritage
Samsula Academy is part of a long and rich educational heritage. Originally established as a two room school house in 1912, the campus grew with the community, serving as a public elementary school for 95 years. The school made the successful conversion to charter school status in 2008, and continues to deliver quality education to the community and surrounding area children. We welcome visitors and interested families to schedule a visit to our campus to learn more about our school and programs.

The vision and purpose of the Samsula Academy is to ensure that all enrolled students will begin their school careers with success, confidence and a firm foundation in all core subjects, with particular emphasis on students’ reading abilities.
