FRAMINGHAM – The Christa McAuliffe Charter School recently launched a new website. The school worked with McAuliffe parent, local business owner, and founder, Matthew Keefe of PixelBit, to design the new website. The new site features easier navigation and mobile responsiveness and hosts a series
of informational videos. We are excited about the new look and feel of the website and are glad that we were able to support not only a McAuliffe family but also a local business owner.

“I have had the pleasure of working with the team at McAuliffe for almost 2 years. Most recently we worked together designing and developing a modern, mobile-focused, highly converting website to help with management of announcements, enrollment, and general inquiries the school receives. The result is a faster, more secure, and easier to navigate site in a time when information is constantly changing,” said Keefe, Founder, PixelBit.

The Christa McAuliffe Charter School, a free, charter public school for students in grades six through eight, is now accepting applications for the 2021-2022 school year. McAuliffe is the only charter public school in Framingham and as a credentialed EL Education school, provides a project-based, hands-on curriculum that encourages team-building and collaboration with peers. Teachers also emphasize students’ development of character and habits of work and learning with an aim for students to be upstanders who contribute to building a better world.

As a charter public school, students are accepted based on a blind, public lottery with the only preference going to applicants who are siblings of students currently attending the school.
