Inspire Academy Charter School Breaks Ground in Sherman, TX

Jul 10, 2024

SHERMAN, Texas (KXII) - Ground was broken for a different kind of school in Sherman Tuesday. Sherman Inspire Academy is the city’s first-ever charter school, and it will serve 600 K-12 students.

Inspire academies have been operating for over 25 years, and they serve thousands of students across Texas. The school is free and public, with enrollment based on a lottery system.

“One of the big misconceptions about charters is it’s about a particular student and we’re not,” said Sherman Inspire Academy Superintendent Justin Johnston.“We serve all students, so if you can drive here, you can come here. We’re looking forward to serving all families in the Texoma area.”

Enrollment begins in November, and the school will open in August of 2025.
