About the Company
Middle and high school (elementary school in the works) in the Bronx that serves all scholars, regardless of their prior academic performance or needs, and provides an engaging, academically rigorous, fully inclusive learning environment to help each achieve success. Opened in 2009 by Founder Caitlin Franco. School has provided essential academic, social, and emotional supports to middle school scholars in the Bronx; and in September 2014, we expanded our impact by opening a high school. We are currently working on plans for the next phase: our College and Career Exploration program, an expansion to elementary school, and Adult Programming classes to include a Community Center. The future includes endless possibilities of what can be provided to the Co-Op City and Castle Hill communities in the Bronx.
