At Uplift Education, student achievement is at the heart of everything we do.
Uplift's mission is to create and sustain public schools of excellence that empower students to reach their highest potential in college and the global marketplace and that inspire in students a life-long love of learning, achievement, and service in order to positively change their world.
Each school provides free college preparatory education in a community that has limited high quality public education options. Our goal is to completely CLOSE the achievement gap between students, regardless of their ethnic or socio-economic background, while ensuring that 100% of our students graduate and enroll in college.
Commit to College: Uplift Education is committed to building a brighter future – one student at a time. We do this by creating quality, college preparatory public schools in underserved communities. Each student must be accepted into a two- or four-year college institution in order to receive their diploma from an Uplift high school.
Commit to Community: Our community approach means that we actively reach out to local leaders and invite them to help us improve education in their communities by serving on our local boards and being advocates for our mission in their local neighborhoods.
Commit to Change: By nurturing academic performance and civic responsibility from kindergarten through high school, we do more than expand our students’ horizons. We also change people’s perceptions of what is possible in public education.
