Uplift's Approach to Education
Each Uplift Education school provides free, college-preparatory education in a community that has limited high quality public education options. Our goal is to completely CLOSE the achievement gap between scholars, regardless of their ethnic or socio-economic background, while ensuring that 100% of our scholars graduate and enroll in college. Uplift’s big goal is for 70% of its graduates to earn a college degree within six years. Our approach to success focuses on two main areas:
The Whole Scholar
We develop well-rounded International Baccalaureate scholars who are critical thinkers, confident in themselves, and appreciate diverse ideas and people.
Our People Network
We have strength as a collective network with all stakeholders valued for their contributions to our mission.
