At Compass Academy, we believe that all students can succeed and become lifelong learners and leaders. Our mission is to help every one of our students realize their unique talents while mastering core academic skills and developing the social-emotional strengths that are required for success in the 21st century. In August 2015, we will open our doors with 112 6th grade students, adding one grade level per year to ultimately serve 750 students in grades 6-12. Our teachers and students will benefit from intensive support from City Year and the Center for Social Organization of Schools and John Hopkins University, two leading nonprofits with 50 years of combined experience helping students succeed. Most importantly, we have a team of talented and energetic educators and leaders who life out our values every day and who are excited to build an extraordinary school.
