Welcome to the Magellan Charter School  
  Magellan was founded on the premise that learning is a dynamic process that is on-going, interactive, and fun. We wanted this place called "school" to be filled with a flurry of purposeful activity and challenging thought, a place where students are enlivened by a desire to learn, and where exceptional teachers bring content to life, skillfully showing how what students learn has meaning and application in the real world.

Over the past 19 years, Magellan has thrived through strong financial and volunteer support from its families.  Your support allows us to continue helping each student become a knowledgeable, thoughtful, lifelong learner. 

Please join us in raising $60,000 for our students!  Thank you very much for your partnership and support in this important event in the life of our school.  IT'S UP TO US to continue Magellan's legacy of excellence! 


 A Brief History of The Magellan Charter School. 
  In 1996 the North Carolina State Legislature passed Charter School legislation allowing for the creation and establishment of independent public schools. These schools would be "chartered" by a local or state board of education and be locally implemented and 
administered. In response to this legislation and a pressing need to provide a different approach to educating students in the middle years, two highly motivated teachers from Wake County, Marybeth Childers and George Coccarelli, filed an application for a charter school that would serve children in grades four  
through eight. It was their belief that children in these middle grades would benefit from a small, personal, and hands-on environment. They asserted that providing continuity during a time of rapid growth and development helps students maintain their focus on academics-the number one priority at Magellan.
