Beckah Chartier joins the Paw Paw Public Schools Community Education team as the new Director. Mrs. Chartier started over the 2019 summer and is looking forward to building a community and culture that facilitates a productive learning environment. Mrs. Chartier has worked as a teacher and administrator for the past 20 years. 

Welcome from the Director:

My goal is to grow and improve the programs here at Cedar Street. It is my personal mission to always do what's best for students. Aspire Academy is designed to help our students who, for various reasons, would benefit from a different high school experience. By personalizing their curriculum, using proven intervention strategies, and employing innovative teaching techniques, this program enables students to stay on track to graduate and work toward their own personal goals.

Aspire Academy provides students the support they need to complete their schoolwork while learning valuable life skills that will help them in their next endeavor.

Our programs have served area children for over 30 years! Certified teachers and trained, experienced staff provide quality programs and activities for children in a safe and caring environment. Programs are open to children from Paw Paw and surrounding districts.

Mission statement:

Develop, Support, Challenge and Inspire Every Child for Life-long Success.
