Summerville Advantage Academy is a tuition-free public charter school serving the greater Homestead community for students in Kindergarten to 5th Grade. Many of our students matriculate to our sister school Palm Glades Preparatory Academy.
Our personalized approach to educating students inspires them to discover their full potential in an environment that celebrates their individual strengths and promotes a community of learners.

If the number of applicants for any grade level exceeds the available student vacancies for that grade level then a lottery will be held to randomly select from the total of student applicants for that grade. An offer of admission will be made to those applicants selected in the lottery up to the number of student vacancies. If the parent’s response is negative or if there is no response then the school shall move to the next applicant selected in the lottery until all student vacancies have been filled. If for some reason, student spaces should become available after all names in the applicant pool have received an offer of admission, and either accepted or rejected that offer, then the school will conduct a subsequent lottery for those applications received after the initial lottery period. Those applicants who have remained on the wait list for the school year must complete a new application for the next school year. Applications do not roll over to the next school year.

Enrollment preference is available to sibling applicants, children of employees or governing board members, children of active duty military families and, students who attended or are assigned to failing schools pursuant to S. 1002.38(2).
