About Us

Avon Grove Charter School is a public, college-preparatory charter school for grades K-12. Opened in 2002, it is located in the small town of West Grove, in Chester County, Pennsylvania. AGCS is independent of the district and is governed by its own Board of Directors, who are held directly accountable for the goals outlined in its charter.

AGCS offers an academically challenging curriculum in a small school setting with individualized learning plans for each student. Ours is a nurturing environment, where every child is well known and cared for by our staff.


Charter Renewed  

In April of 2017, the Avon Grove School District Board of Directors held a public meeting and renewed our Charter for the next five years. Kristen Bishop, our Head of School and C.E.O., presented information about our school and our expansion plans. Please download the
