Cost is $1420, paid in full by July 30. Please fill out the Google doc below if you’d like to be added to the waitlist. As seats open, we fill them from the waitlist.

The bus picks up at Exit 5 in Plymouth (Panera Bread) at 6:45am, then proceeds to the Park & Ride in Sagamore Beach and picks up at 7:10am, then proceeds to the Sturgis Schools. The bus is usually back in Sagamore Beach dropping off students at 4:10pm and in Plymouth around 4:30pm. The bus follows the school calendar and all half days, late starts, and early releases.

Sturgis' Annual Appeal

Image of Annual Appeal flier and link to larger flier

We are thrilled to share that The William Sturgis Foundation has recently purchased 529 Main Street in Hyannis – a venue midway between our two campuses – to serve as a mixed use facility for Sturgis East and Sturgis West. Your donations to this year's Annual Appeal will upgrade 529 Main Street to provide more opportunities for Sturgis special events, performing arts, IB testing and assemblies. Please note that donors who give $529 or greater will have their names recognized as a 529 sponsor inside of our new venue.

But it's not the amount you give that matters, it’s your action that counts! Our aim is 100% donor participation to demonstrate a collective base of support and enhance our ability to gain further grant funding.

Donations can be made by check to: William Sturgis Friends of Education Foundation, PO Box 2012, Hyannis, MA 02601. Donations can also be made by credit card through the "Donate" button on the right side of this page.


Text/email reminder system allows us to send text reminders to you about events at Sturgis East. This system will not replace our current method of weekly emails home. It will be used for more specific messages such as "School Photo Day- Thursday, Sept. 25". The system will not show actual phone numbers and can't be used for one-on-one communication. If you would like to receive such texts from the main office, please follow the link below to join:

You will be asked to select phone (must be cell phone), smartphone app or email address to receive messages on.


Community Art with Sturgis Charter School

Check out the video created by Sara Mannal of Barnstable Today for a great recap of the community art sailboard project. The sailboard, found discarded on a local beach, was repurposed into artwork by Sturgis art students. “The hand painted/decoupaged underwater scene serves as a whimsical yet thoughtful reminder of the vital importance of our surrounding waters and enhances the “sense of place” one feels while on Cape Cod,” said Ben Hughes, Creative Economy Projects Manager for Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce.
