The Audubon Center has committed itself to authorizing charter schools that have recognized the importance of project based and environmental education. ACNW offers their authorized schools:
*an annual retreat to connect to other schools that have similar goals
*connections to the state organizations that are committed to charter school success
*the option of graduate training and residential experiences that are tied to the school’s mission
*a group of experts who can help schools overcome obstacles and develop projects that will be successful and significant
Audubon Center of the North Woods has been the authorizer of Natural Science Academy since the doors opened in August of 2008. Audubon is the perfect authorizer for our school, as the values of Natural Science Academy are values shared by Audubon Center of the North Woods. Our charter contract with Audubon was renewed in 2014.
