Join us on this special occasion as we mark 20 years of student success at Plato Academy Schools. From its humble beginnings in 2004 with one campus, Plato Academy has grown into a network of nine thriving K-8 schools, with over 4,000 students in total.

On March 2nd, we joyously commemorate two decades since the inception of Plato Academy schools, marking an extraordinary journey of growth, learning, and profound connections. Reflecting on this milestone, we cherish the myriad of accomplishments that span multiple generations of students who, in their unique ways, have become an integral part of the ever-expanding Plato Academy family.

Guided by educators fueled by unwavering passion and dedication, every success story is not just a triumph for the individual but a collective celebration within the Plato Academy community. The smiles on the faces of our mentors illuminate the path of knowledge, fostering an environment where students not only receive education but find a sanctuary to blossom, learn, and flourish.

Under the visionary leadership of the late Steve Christopoulos, and the dedication of so many people, Plato Academy has evolved from a small charter school to an impressive group of nine K-8 campuses with over 4,000 students in total. This March, we extend an invitation to families, Plato friends, alumni, and our local communities to join us in a heartfelt celebration, as we delve into the rich history of Plato Academy Schools. To honor the past, celebrate the present, and embrace the promising future that lies ahead for the Plato Academy Schools community.
