PURSUE YOUR OWN GREATNESS.

We guide scholars along individual paths to success with first-class educational platforms of diverse and accelerated hands-on learning, where scholars are empowered to define and pursue their own greatness as leaders in college, career, and life beyond.

OUR MISSION

Our Mission is to empower scholars with the habits of mind and character to assume the highest responsibilities of life, citizenship, and leadership, who are College, Career, and Community READY from Day One. We achieve this by strategically partnering with elite institutions of higher education, local and global corporate partners, and community and civic leaders, in a collective effort to provide EACH scholar with a unique educational environment and model that cultivates learning by engaging and doing, and inspires and requires Creativity and Innovation, Critical Thinking and Problem Solving, and Communication and Collaboration.

OUR VISION

Our Vision is to transform communities by building better citizens through careers, education, and community action.

OUR PILLARS

OUR FOCUS AND PLAN

We develop & support high-tech, career focused, college preparatory schools  for scholars in grades K-12. Schools that will equip scholars with the skills, credentials, and experiences they need to start a career upon graduation or continue their studies in college. We focus on two industry pathways: Computer Science and Information Technology, with opportunities for specialization aligned with local employers. Upon graduation, in addition to their high school diplomas, scholars will have the potential to earn an Associate’s degree and/or industry-recognized certifications, 100 hours of hands-on work experience, and completion of a Community Action Research Project.

WHY WE EXIST

We exist to serve scholars who are looking to accelerate their college and career readiness in a uniquely designed learning environment and learning model. Our scholars embrace the charge “The Future is in OUR Hands!” We provide scholars with a K-12th grade high school-college-career continuum that allows them to experience the direct links between what they are learning in the classroom and what is happening NOW, at both elite colleges and universities, and corporations around the world.

SEE OUR MODEL

WE LEAD BY EXAMPLE.

Schools can best be defined as door openers.  We are committed to opening the door early to college graduation, career readiness, and community leadership, for each of the scholars we serve.
