About


Mission & Core Values


Our Mission is to embrace a diverse student body and inspire student success through an innovative curriculum, the cultivation of environmental stewardship, and by holding students, parents, and staff accountable for results. Learn More



Our History


The earliest history of the school dates back to Civil War Brigadier General Paul Ambrose Oliver, whose heirs donated the land for the original Oliver School in Bear Creek Township. More than seventy years later, another act of kindness by Mrs. Gail Popple, allowed the tradition of a quality, community-centered public education to continue, with new life being infused into the original school building with the creation of Bear Creek Community Charter School.

High School


With the success of Luzerne County’s first and only public charter school, the demand for options beyond 8th grade is evident among parents. Administrators and trustees are continually asked about the possibility of extending the school’s programming through high school. A charter revision to expand grade levels is a major undertaking, with a considerable investment in time and resources, which would detract from the School’s short-term goals and operations. A charter revision to pursue expanding into high school is not part of Bear Creek Community Charter School’s current (5-10 year) strategic plan. Learn More
