Board of Directors Important Information Update

Bradford Prep Families,

Bradford Prep opened its doors in 2014 with 465 K-8th students and 45 staff in two modular buildings. Today we are home to 1541 K-12 students and 176 staff on a 75-acre campus. A growth of over 300% in just seven years! During this time, Bradford has become one of the most successful K-12 charter schools in North Carolina. We had the largest waitlist for K-12 charter schools in the state in 2021!

With much excitement, we are moving into the final phase of our charter’s growth. We have reached full student capacity; our academic campus is complete, and the start of our athletic complex is on the horizon. As part of our planning for this final phase, the board along with Ms. Painter, have identified the need for an organizational structure that offers specialized support in critical areas – more specifically a focus on curriculum development for academic improvement. Therefore, our leadership will grow next year to include an Academic Director and an Executive Director. At her recommendation, Ms. Painter will become our Academic Director starting July 2022. A role that will focus fully on the K-12 academic program, working directly with administration and teaching staff. This role will give Ms. Painter the opportunity to apply her passion and expertise to develop an instructional curriculum that helps correct any academic gaps and better provide an accelerated program aligned with our college-prep mission. Having Ms. Painter focus on academics will allow for the placement of an Executive Director. This new role will oversee the executive functions for the school, finances, fundraising, academics, and other operations while working directly with the board and state to meet compliance with our charter. In addition, this will create an opportunity to expand our community partnerships with the development of our athletic complex. These changes are part of a strategic and natural progression in our journey as a growing charter school. These steps will help ensure success not only for our students but for Bradford as a whole! 

Over the next few weeks, we will begin the search for our new Executive Director. We will share updates on the search progress in our monthly meetings. We are excited for the future of Bradford – this final phase is a huge testament to the hard work, dedication, passion, and support from our administration and staff, as well as our Bradford families.

With appreciation, BPS Board of Directors
