THIS IS TO ADDRESS THE QUESTION ABOUT HOW THE ACADEMY CAN PARTNER WITH THE YMCA( A CHRISTIAN ORGANIZATION)....While the Marco Island Academy and the YMCA will share the same campus, the Academy will adhere to all state regulations for public charter schools including any statutes pertaining to religion. This is not the first time a public school and YMCA have collaborated with one another. Actually, joint-ventures of charter schools and YMCA’s around the country have proven to be very effective. A similar partnership was formed in Orlando between the Lake Nona YMCA and the Northlake Park Community School. The collaboration between a public school and a YMCA has proven to be very successful, showing tremendous advantages throughout the school and community. The Northlake Park Community School has been an A rated school ever since it has been graded by the Florida Department of Education (2000). In fact, the U. S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan visited Florida’s Lake Nona YMCA and Northlake Park Community School in July. He called the school “the model of what a 21st Century School should be.”
