    History of Vanguard Academy:

    Vanguard Academy was established as a charter school in 2001 with an enrollment of 32 students.  Our first establishment was with our neighborhood church and we served students from both the church facility and portables that were placed at the back of the church.  Vanguard Academy currently has three Elementary schools and one Secondary Campus. In 2013 we had the honor of having our first graduating class. Vanguard Academy is a school of choice and operates as a tuition free public school to our communities.

    Welcome to the new Vanguard Academy web site. We have been working hard for the past few months to redesign the web site, and we will be making additions over the course of the next several weeks and months.  The site will continue to evolve and keep you up to date on important school activities and information.  While the site won't be a daily newspaper by any means, it is certainly our goal to keep the content fresh and exciting in an effort to entice you to return often.

    We are excited to tell you that the new web site is adaptable for viewing on all mobile devices and that you have a choice on your viewing preference.

    The next time you view our website on a tablet or smartphone, our web site will automatically detect your mobile device, display the mobile view and will remember it each time you return. If you change your mind, look for the Full Site/Mobile link on the footer of the web site to toggle back and forth.
