Our model was developed to answer one question: 

 

What will our students need to succeed in a high-tech career?

 

The college-only approach has helped build some great schools, but it hasn’t delivered on the charter sector’s promise of freedom, empowerment and choice for all kids.  

We believe in that promise, and we believe that great career preparation combined with demanding college preparatory education is the model that will get us there.

 

Our program will allow students to discover their dream career and then build the credentials, professional network, and soft skills to pursue that career when they graduate.

 
 
 
  We believe that long term success requires strong academic skills, tech skills, and real work experience.
