March 9, 2012 by staff 

The Derrick Thomas Academy, The Derrick Thomas Academy is a tuition-free, public charter school in Kansas City, Missouri. It opened in 2001 and was named for former Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Derrick Thomas. As of the 2009-2010 school year, the Academy serves approximately 1,000 students in Grades PreK-8.

It is an Edison Learning charter school. Derrick Thomas established the Third and Long Foundation based in Kansas City in 1990 with a promise to “sack illiteracy” in the lives of the 9 to 13 year old urban children in the program. After his death in 2000, EdisonLearning partnered with the Third and Long Foundation to open the Academy.
