Dr. Conway Superintendent at Camden's Promise Charter Schools

Thank you for your interest in Camden’s Promise Charter Schools, home to Camden's Pride, Katz Dalsey Academy, Camden's Promise, and Camden Academy. We are currently the largest network of charter schools in the City of Camden. Our mission is to set high academic standards, stimulate young minds to learn and maintain a positive educational environment.

At Camden’s Charter School Network, we have a dedicated staff committed to helping our students excel in the classroom and beyond. From modern facilities and small classes to a textbook-free environment, we’re committed to providing students the latest high-tech educational tools to facilitate their learning experiences. Our goal is that all our students graduate from high school and go on to college. To that end, we have been quite successful.
