Why Countryside?

Countryside Academy Learn Grow Fly
If you're considering making the change and becoming part of the Countryside Crew, let us tell you a little bit about what makes us special.
We are a public school, following all the same State and Federal guidelines as any other public school. Being a public school means we are tuition free, so being a part of the Countryside Family doesn't require any payment on your part to attend our school.
Since we opened 23 years ago, we have grown, evolved, and became a leader in the K-12 Charter School space, offering some pretty unique opportunities in Agriculture, Aviation, and Community-focused events, to name a few. 
We are a safe and caring community that is supported by our thorough enrollment process, competitive academic policies, and strict code of conduct. We were founded by a group of people who value education for all and have continued to support a staff who believe the same thing. We strive for an educational experience that is different than other options, that can be innovative and progressive.
Whether you want to be part of the leadership program of FFA, take part in Agricultural Science Projects that partner with NASA, raise pigs, fly drones and simulators, or build rockets and planes, we most likely have something for you.
Still not sure? Take a look at some of our projects on our site, or schedule a tour of our facilities with our team. Reach out to Hilary Furney for all of your enrollment questions and needs. She can be reached by email at [email protected] or by phone at (269) 944-3319 ext. 106.
We also have an enrollment page located on the top right corner of our website. There you will find the online enrollment options as well as answers to questions you may have about enrollment procedures.
We are excited for you to come Learn, Grow, and Fly with us!
