Promising Pages

The mission of Promising Pages is to collect new and donated books and share them with children living in the Charlotte Area Book Desert: those with few, if any, books at home. We work to create a culture of book sharing and ownership. Promising Pages envisions a world where all children have home libraries of self-selected books, can see themselves reflected in the books they read, and have made reading a joyful habit for a lifetime.

Empowered Minds Academy

EMA is a non-traditional school where Panthers (our mascot) are in control of their own learning. EMA, as a member of the Acton Academy Affiliate Network, is passionate about reinventing and revolutionizing education, pursuing best practices, and has agreed to protect a learner-driven environment. We exist to offer an alternative non-traditional 21st century model of education that is learner-driven. Instead of cultivating learners who function well only under authority, we aspire for all EMA Panthers to cherish freedom and the responsibilities that come with it.
