Days Left



Let's Keep Growing

In 2003, we were one school with 100 students. Today, we’ve grown to five schools with over 1,800 preschool – 8th grade students. To continue to grow and excel, we need your help. Our goal is to raise $25M by 2020, to double our impact in Washington by launching new schools, supporting good teachers to become great ones, and providing a world-class education to 1,500 additional children in the city’s most underserved neighborhoods. By donating to our campaign and spreading the word, you’re giving kids in DC the power to do more.

See how the $25 million breaks down over five years.

“In my nine years of teaching, I think my greatest impact is my desire to be a consistent, positive model of hard work, love, and courage for my students. In reality, my students’ ability to do the hard work of learning and stretching themselves is what inspires me to stay in the work day after day.”
