TMSA's Top-Notch Tuition-Free STEAM Education in Charlotte!

CogniaThe Math and Science Academy of Charlotte - TMSA Charlotte is a tuition-free public charter school focusing on Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Math (STEAM) in Charlotte, North Carolina. We serve more than 800 students from kindergarten through 12th grade on our two campuses.

We are excited to bring TMSA's first-class and tuition-free STEAM education to Charlotte! Queen City STEM School joined the TMSA family last year as The Math and Science Academy of Charlotte - TMSA Charlotte!

We are lifelong learners with big hearts. As our motto “Science, Wisdom, Peace” signifies, we seek knowledge, pursue wisdom, and foster peace in all we do. Our robust academic program and character education develop students' skills to live in harmony with themselves, with others, and with the natural environment.

We are committed to providing exceptional education in a safe, nurturing, and culturally responsive learning environment supported by a strong parent, school, and community partnership.

Welcome to TMSA Charlotte!

What's Happening?

Welcome to the 2023-2024 School Year: Our Journey to Excellence Starts Tomorrow!

Dear TMSA Students and Parents,

Warm greetings to our vibrant community!

Tomorrow marks the beginning of yet another exciting school year, and as the sun rises on our campuses in Greensboro, Cary, Charlotte, and Apex, we are eagerly awaiting the arrival of our 4,400 students. With each passing year, we come together as one family, and this year will be no different.

To our dear students, we have watched you shine, grow, and challenge yourselves in the past, and we are filled with enthusiasm and energy as we anticipate the heights you will reach this year. The hallways have missed the echoes of your laughter, the classrooms yearn for your boundless curiosity, and our hearts are filled with pride knowing the potential that each one of you brings.

Dear parents, your unwavering support and belief in our mission have been the bedrock of our success. Together, we have set ambitious targets for this academic year. With your partnership, we are confident that every milestone, no matter how challenging, will be met with accomplishment.

Our teachers see the potential in each child, connect deeply and help them reach the zenith of their capabilities. That's the commitment we bring to the table for each child - to see them, support them, and celebrate them.

We are not just aiming for academic excellence; we are on a mission to mold future leaders, innovators, thinkers, and dreamers. Our vision is clear: By 2025, TMSA will be consistently recognized as one of the top STEM/STEAM schools in North Carolina. This isn't just a dream—it's a promise we are making to each one of you.

Students, embrace the challenges, relish the learning, build strong relationships, and remember: success isn't just about reaching the finish line; it's about the journey and the stories you'll tell.

Parents, trust in our shared vision, engage with our community, and know that together we are building a legacy of excellence.

Welcome back to TMSA, where dreams take flight, aspirations become reality, and every day is a step toward a brighter future. Here's to a year full of success, achievements, and cherished memories!
Warm regards,
Ben Karaduman, Superintendent
