About Us

Our mission at Caliber Schools is to shift the experiences, expectations, and outcomes for students in historically underserved communities. We provide students with a challenging and engaging education that equips them with the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in college, career, and community. 

Caliber’s four graduate pillars--Heart, Smart, Think, Act--guide our work. Caliber graduates will be academically college ready; have emotional intelligence or ‘EQ’; be critical thinkers, and have the skills and desire to be changemakers in their communities and the world. We are a community-based organization and celebrate the diversity of the communities we serve. Our parents are active partners; frequently engaging through school events, restorative practices, and academic support.

We are looking for educators and leaders who want to join a small but growing team of diverse community schools. Our first school, Beta Academy in Richmond, CA, opened in 2014 and is now a fully grown K-8 serving 800 students. ChangeMakers Academy in Vallejo, CA opened in fall 2016 and serves 700 students, TK-8th grade. Our long-term vision is to serve students K-12 in our immediate and surrounding communities.
