Charter Schools in Florida are fully recognized as public schools. All students enrolled in Early Beginnings Academy are students of Miami-Dade County Public Schools, subject to applicable policies and entitled to the same rights. Your child therefore attends our school as a Miami Dade County Public School student. Early Beginnings Academy is a “School of Choice.” This means students are not required to attend Early Beginnings Academy and families have the option to attend a regular public school program. However, it also means if you choose to have your child attend Early Beginnings Academy, you are also choosing to accept the policies and expectations we have for you and your child. Families and the staff of Early Beginnings Academy will work together as a team – with the goal of achieving the best outcomes for your child.
Early Beginnings Academy is a specialized center teaching students, PreK to 5th grade, with exceptional educational needs. EBA students in 3rd through 5th grade participate in the FSAA beginning the 2019-2020 school year. Additionally, as an exceptional student education program, EBA does not receive a school grade but will be eligible for an improvement rating in the 2022-2023 school year. EBA did not participate in FSAA testing during the 2019-2020 school year due to the pandemic.
