Plato Academy was founded in 2004 and owes it’s success to the Former CEO of Superior Schools and manager of Plato Academy Schools, Steve Christopoulos.
Motivated by his own children’s need for a quality education, he took the helm of the first Plato Academy Charter School. During the initial months, the school faced financial woes and almost closed. However, Mr. Christopoulos did not quit. He was relentless and persisted to herald his vision of academic excellence within a culture that would build each student’s character.
We will continue to herald his vision relentlessly in order to raise the standards of our children’s education for generations to come.
