Founded in 1997, Somerset Academy Charter School opened in Miramar, Florida to humble beginnings. Appropriately named Somerset Neighborhood, the school was housed in a two-room schoolhouse and served 50 students from Kindergarten through 5th grade. To meet parental demand, the school expanded in the years to follow but was careful to maintain a nurturing, tight-knit learning environment and multi-age/multi-level classroom philosophy that parents love and children thrive in.
Somerset Academy now offers high-quality K-12 educational programs in Florida, Nevada and Texas that have, and continue to, achieve academic success. Although all Somerset Academy schools share a vision, each campus has a unique and enriching educational program that is tailored to the community they serve. This formula, along with incredible support from parents, has made Somerset Academy a nationally recognized, award-winning family of high quality public charter schools.
In 2009, Somerset Academy became the first network of public charter schools in the nation to earn district accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools for its proven commitment to quality and educational excellence. Somerset Academy Davie earned a National Blue Ribbon from the U.S. Department of Education; Somerset South Homestead earned the highest gains of any elementary school in the state (while serving a predominantly minority population) in 2011; and the graduation rate at Somerset Academy high schools continues to surpass state and national figures at 90 to 100 percent.
Our Vision: Somerset Academy South Homestead is dedicated to providing equitable, high-quality education for all students.
Our Purpose: Somerset Academy South Homestead promotes a culture that maximizes student achievement and fosters the development of accountable, 21st century learners in a safe and enriching environment.
