Blackstone Academy Charter School, Inc. operates a 300-student high school and an educational enrichment program for middle and high school students. Our high school serves students from Pawtucket, Central Falls and Providence, Rhode Island. The school began in 2002 and grew out of the 30+ year old SPIRIT Educational Program, an educational enrichment program for students from Providence, Pawtucket and Central Falls. The school and affiliated programs all have commitments to community involvement and take a “whole child” approach to learning. The corporation was formed to assist local urban students to complete high school, attend higher education, and contribute to their local, regional and global community.










Blackstone Academy is proud to be a RIDE Commended School. This commendation is a reflection of our strong school culture, the academic success and growth of our students, and our commitment to engaging diverse learners despite their past or present challenges. The majority of our students go on to higher education and will be the first in their family to do so.

Blackstone Academy needs your help. It's run like a small business – every penny is spent wisely. But even with that vigilance we still can't afford everything we need to best serve our students. Please considering donating to BACS so that we can do even more for our amazing young men and women.
