Academy Charter High School is a four-year Charter public high school located in Lake Como, New Jersey, United States that operates independently of the local school district under the terms of a charter granted by the Commissioner of the New Jersey Department of Education. The school serves residents of Allenhurst, Asbury Park, Neptune, Avon-by-the-Sea, Belmar, Bradley Beach, Deal, Interlaken and Lake Como. Students are accepted at the school on a lottery basis with seats in the incoming freshman class allocated in proportion to the population of each of the participating communities; unfilled seats are then offered to residents of other communities.[3]

Academy Charter High School opened in September 1998. Maximum enrollment authorized by the state is 220 students.[4]

As of the 2011-12 school year, the school had an enrollment of 199 students and 17.5 classroom teachers (on an FTE basis), for a student–teacher ratio of 11.37:1. There were 55 students (27.6% of enrollment) eligible for free lunch and 18 (9.0% of students) eligible for reduced-cost lunch.[1]
