About

The Hawbridge School is a tuition-free public charter school serving students in grades 4-12. We encourage students from all North Carolina school districts to apply for admission.

Located in a restored mill on the banks of the Haw River in Saxapahaw, we’re a leader in the outdoor classroom movement, and our highly qualified, deeply committed faculty includes scientists, mathematicians, a composer, writers, editors, performers, visual artists, graphic designers, and a local (very local) radio personality–all of them highly accredited and committed to research-driven education.

Our faculty-designed Hawbridge Model involves differentiated, individualized instruction to foster academic, behavioral, emotional and social development; interdisciplinary teaching; place-based education; discovery-based learning; and most importantly, sustaining a community where everyone feels appreciated and included.

Extracurricular programs include a full slate of clubs, student-directed micro-enterprises and internships that give students hands-on business experience in craft-making, theater, and organic gardening. Through our Hawbridge Outdoors program, students, faculty, and parent chaperones go hiking, biking, camping, canoeing, horseback riding, ziplining, rock climbing and ice-skating on a variety of weekend excursions. The Hawbridge Sports program offered four sports during the 2016-2017 school year, allowing students to compete in soccer (fall), cross country (fall), basketball (fall/winter) and ultimate frisbee (spring) competitions. The school will be adding a girls volleyball team during the 2017-2018 school year.

We are a bully-free school.
