Overview:Foundations College Prep is a public charter 6-12 school serving the students of Chicago’s Roseland community beginning in the fall of 2014. Our mission is to empower youth to thrive in college and life by giving them access to innovative educators who teach them to think critically, live with honor, and strive for a better self and world.
Three central strategies underlie our approach:
1.) Creating a 6th through 12th Grade College Continuum.
2.) Reimagining the use of time, talent, and technology.
3.)Building on the successes of 1st generation charter schools.
By holding to our foundations we plan to engage and grow with the Roseland-Pullman community.
We believe that children who come to school with less deserve more from our schools; yet, we know “more” cannot rest solely on educators. Our founding motivation is the belief that addressing the scale of our educational inequities requires a relentless focus on designing excellent schools that depend on talented, committed staff, not heroics. Foundations College Prep is committed to being an excellent place to work, a school that values and treats students AND teachers as individuals.
