The Chelsea Opportunity Academy offers a transformational and supportive learning environment for overage and undercredited learners who have not experienced success in traditional high schools. Our approach includes personalized pathways, competency-based learning, holistic support services, and multilingual education. COA students develop the life-long skills necessary to be successful as college students, career professionals, and community members. Our community values diversity of perspective and voice as well as the unique assets of our students, families, and staff, and view adversity as an opportunity to show fortitude and perseverance. At COA, all community members believe that every day is a new day and a new opportunity to learn and grow.
