About Us

We are a Coalition of charter schools that have racially, culturally, and socioeconomically diverse student populations.

We Believe:   
  • Diverse schools provide greater opportunities for students to learn from one another.
  • Diversity is a cost-effective method of boosting student achievement.
  • Diverse schools promote the celebration and understanding of other cultures and viewpoints.
  • Diverse schools invigorate and strengthen urban neighborhoods by bringing community members together.    
  • Charter schools can and should contribute to solving the historic challenge of integrating our public school system.
  • Achieving diversity often requires deliberate efforts through recruitment, admissions policies and school design.
  • Diverse charter schools promote equality by ensuring that students from different backgrounds have the same high quality educational opportunities.
