Prudential Spirit of Community Awards: Distinguished Finalist

MORE THAN TEXTBOOKS AND BLACKBOARDS

The MOT Charter Academies were developed to nurture those students who love to explore their world. Our rigorous Arts and Science & Technology programs encourage students to question, debate, challenge and learn from all aspects of learning methods. The classrooms, labs and studios on our campus include both open, engaging group areas, as well as places for smaller, more in depth discussions of student’s work and thoughts.

Since our inaugural year, MOT Charter High School has given students the opportunity to earn college credits through our regular curriculum courses.  Our partnerships with Wilmington University and Wesley College allow us to continue to expand the opportunities available to all grade levels.
Dual enrollment course material is embedded in our content therefore classes are in our school, by our certified faculty. Students and their families are encouraged to take advantage of the MOT Charter partnership as it provides a significant savings over the regular course cost (typically over $1,000 per course) at the university level; however students are never required to take these classes for college credits.
Assignments and final grades are assessed for both our high school standards (earning 1 credit towards a high school diploma) and for the college requirements. Both Wilmington University and Wesley College's grading scale is similar, but not identical to MOT Charter High School’s scale. Final letter grades may differ from student report card and their college transcript. This information will be clearly communicated by the instructors throughout and at the end of each course.
Your child will be earning college credit which is transferable to other colleges, although there is no guarantee that the courses will count for another college’s specific programming. Courses that do not meet specific criteria for programming at another college may still count as elective credit.
New students need to apply online to the university of their choosing, complete the appropriate FERPA form and MOT Charter Agreement form. Please send all forms in with your registration and payment.
Senior year students can elect to take independent study courses through either Wilmington University or West Virginia University. Following a college semester schedule, students must take one class in the fall (high school marking periods 1 & 2) and another during the spring (high school marking periods 3 & 4) college semesters. During an MOT Charter class period, coursework is completed directly through the university's online course portal working with other university online students and their professor.
Assignments and final grades are assessed by the university, students report their final grades to MOT Charter for high school transcript (earning .5 credit towards high school diploma for passing grade). Both Wilmington University and West Virginia University's grading scale is similar, but not identical to MOT Charter High School’s scale. Final letter grades may differ from student report card and their college transcript.
