About

The 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.

TMSA Charlotte was established as Queen City STEM School in 2015 by a group of public charter school advocates who supported effective, diverse, and well-funded public charter schools in North Carolina. Since its opening, QCSS closely cooperated with TMSA Public Charter Schools. This cooperation led QCSS to officially become a TMSA school in June 2022 after the approval of the NC State Board of Education.

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.

We are a part of TMSA Public Charter Schools. For more information about our new mission and vision, visit www.tmsapcs.org/about_us
