Ledyard Charter School

Welcome to Ledyard Charter School!

We have been hard at work this summer gearing up for the new school year!  With the assistance of many wonderful volunteers, we have painted classrooms, given our kitchen a much needed renovation, hired new faculty and taken professional development classes.  We are excited and eager to begin the new year and cannot wait to see you on Tuesday, August 30th!

“Being in this school has been a blessing. Being able to learn the way I want to and really need to is a miracle. The past year and a half at LCS have been full of amazing experiences and unexpected opportunities. This charter school has helped me see school in a new way and has encouraged me to find a college that fits my unique learning style.”

Ledyard Charter School
Makes Learning Real

Meaningful learning is learning that makes a difference — in one’s mind and in one’s life. This type of learning is what we want our students to achieve.







Students are more likely to be actively engaged in their education when a purpose is clearly defined and the results are tangible and meaningful.

Please follow this link for the North Central Regional Educational Laboratory’s definition of
meaningful learning:

At Ledyard, learning focuses on students’ strengths & interests and provides highly motivating & relevant learning opportunities based on an integrated academic core, supplemented with service learning & internships in the community.
