Established in 1999, Southern Wake Academy (SWA) is one of the most sought after tuition-free, public charter schools in Wake County.

Our small class sizes, independent-learning methods, and dedicated teachers and administrators foster a personalized approach where students can thrive in a learning environment where they receive the academic, cultural, athletic and social skills needed to succeed.

We have built an extraordinary school with dedicated teachers that work hard to ensure every child at Southern Wake Academy reaches their potential – inside and outside of our classroom. Our child-centered teaching approach positively impact every family at SWA.

“Our students gain more independence through self advocacy- they learn to present themselves and their ideas effectively.” -David Thomas, Principal

“This is by far the best school my son has EVER attended. He has special needs, but is treated like an adult and has been able to flourish in this small, dedicated environment.– SWA Parent 
“SWA is a wonderful opportunity for students who need a small school environment. The faculty and staff are excellent.” – SWA Parent
SWA isn’t like a traditional school.  If you need help, all my teachers will give me personalized time.  It shows they care and are willing to make sure I finish my school work.” – SWA 8th Grader
