Schooling Management & Technology

New York, NY


We're redefining what's possible in public education.

We set out to tackle this education crisis with a groundbreaking school design that delivers a rigorous, whole-child education to students from all backgrounds.

A great education consists of more than just rigorous academics.

Every aspect of our school model is designed to cultivate the skills, mindsets, and knowledge our scholars need to successfully navigate the demands of college. With these goals in mind, we provide numerous opportunities for scholars from kindergarten to high school to explore interests outside of the classroom and build independence and self-efficacy skills.
