Welcome to Vida Charter School! 

From the outside, we may look like the typical small-town school, but what happens inside our classrooms is absolutely unique in Pennsylvania. Located in the small town of Gettysburg, we are the future, educating more than 200 students in Spanish and English. Both languages are equally spoken, read, and written by our students. All subjects, including mathematics, science, and history, are taught in both languages. Our goal is for students to leave sixth grade being fully bilingual, biliterate, and bicultural.

Another distinction is our special focus on Healthy Lifestyles. With a full-time teacher on staff, we ensure that students engage in regular physical activity and learn about healthy food choices. Our Wellness Committee, made up of parents and teachers, ensures that we look at all aspects of the school from a wellness perspective.

Vida Charter School offers all this as a free, public school! We are a dynamic community of excellent teachers and dedicated parents, and we invite you to join us. Enroll your child today!
