Who We Are

Forte Prep is a new, tuition-free middle school open to students in Queens, New York. We are driven by a philosophy of achieving excellence in all facets of life and learning. We believe in the power of education to transform the lives of students from diverse, often disadvantaged, backgrounds. Through rigorous academics, creative & technological enrichment and leadership development, we prepare our students to excel at college preparatory high schools and beyond. We have opened with 90 5th graders in August, and will grow into a 5-8 school.


Through rigorous academics, quality instruction, and a positive culture of individual and collective responsibility, Forte Preparatory Academy Charter School equips all students in grades 5 through 8 to excel in college preparatory high schools and use their leadership and voice to change the world.

Role of the Board

We are looking for dynamic, passionate and committed board members who believe all children deserve a high-quality free education, and that it is essential to work with families and our community in doing so. Board members support our school, and ensure that the school is meeting its promise to scholars and families. Board members serve on at least one committee--Academic Achievement, Governance, Fundraising, and Finance-- each of which provides specific oversight on those specific aspects of the school. While we welcome all who are committed to our mission, we are specifically looking for applicants with the following skill sets: marketing, real estate, community organizing, and management.
