About Us

Aurora Collegiate Academy serves the greater Memphis community in the Highland Heights neighborhood. Our fundamental belief is that the foundation for academic and character success needed for college begins in kindergarten. We serve a diverse population of students in grades K-5 from all over Memphis and the world, and over half of our students come from Spanish-speaking homes. We pride ourselves on providing extensive support in literacy and language, even offering Chinese courses for all of our students!

Core to our mission, we unequivocally believe that every child, regardless of race, socioeconomic status, or incoming academic level is capable of achieving high academic success. We hold that it is every child’s fundamental right to be provided with a tuition- free, academically rigorous public education. All of our students are capable to get to and through college.

We opened with a kindergarten and first grade in 2012. Next year, Aurora Collegiate Academy will be in its final year of growth and become a K-5 building, ensuring the foundation for our scholars’ futures is solid.

Along with academics, character is of the utmost importance. We instill the following five values in our scholars through daily teaching:

  • Personal responsibility: We are committed to the highest level of achievement and behavior
  • Respect: We show respect at all times for each other, for property, and for differences.
  • Integrity: We do what is right even if doing the right thing is more difficult.
  • Determination: We work harder in the face of adversity.
  • Excellence. We participate fully in everything we do.
Our scholars work to operate with these values at school. Click here to learn more about our PRIDE values.
