About Us


NCF Charter is a new approach to education in an ever-changing world. We recognize that the traditional educational system is not a perfect fit for every student, and we strive to create a productive, innovative environment for every one of our learners no matter what their needs.

NCF Charter is a [SACS ACCREDITED] institution and provides a standard Alachua County diploma. NCF Charter uses a computer-based approach, and our courses can be accessed at home or the library. Credits earned at NCF Charter can be transferred to other Florida high schools.

Every student at our Alachua County charter school receives individual attention to his or her academic needs. The goal of our accelerated charter high school program is to create active, engaged learners who achieve all their goals in a timely and efficient manner, whether it be college, vocational training, entering the work force, or even recovering credits and returning to their original high school.
