Welcome to Platte River Academy! We are a public school of choice in the Douglas County School District. You will see, as you read the many links and pages on this website, that this school was not started with a “business as usual” idea or model. Our school was started to rewrite the rulebook and to extend the boundaries of the “possible.” We have had a magnificent strategy and it has worked brilliantly for over 18 years. We are very committed to continuing the school’s success and progress.
PRA is a charter school that has earned many prestigious awards, including the John Irwin School of Excellence Award (every year since 2001) and the Governor’s Distinguished Improvement Award. These are some incredible honors and they showcase all of the care, love, and hard work that has gone into this school.Click here for full article...

Parents please note: if you call in an absence for your student but don’t identify the reason for the absence, it will be considered unexcused. Kindly leave a detailed message so we can appropriately record your student’s absence. Reporting your child’s absence as soon as you are aware of it will enable the clinic aide to avoid calling YOU.
First practice is Tuesday, February 7th from 3:30pm to 5pm. No experience necessary. We will teach you everything you need to know. Open to 6th through 8th graders.
