College is our north star. We are driven by the belief that all children are scholars and have a right to attend, and be successful in, college.

Nothing matters more than great teaching. Our teachers go through a rigorous selection process, get weekly coaching and support, and work tirelessly — and together — to hone their craft.

We believe in measuring student academic achievement in tangible ways, and that using data strategically helps us to provide the highest quality education for our scholars.

We keep the pace quick so we have the time to reach our ambitious goals and because it’s more fun and effective for scholars. We use an extended school day to close existing achievement gaps and still provide important enrichment opportunities.

Our small school size and two-teacher model enables us to provide high-quality, individualized instruction in small groups. Our clear systems and routines provide an environment that is safe, supportive, and conducive to learning.

We love what we do and it shows! Teachers and scholars embrace challenge, work hard, and have fun doing it.
