Our Mission

To serve Paterson children by building an uncommon school where students partake of a rigorous, extended day academic program that gives them the means to succeed in school and life, no matter their background or circumstance.

To shape an intimate, supportive, engaging school community where classes are small and personalized; where parents are partners; where teachers teach with passion and commitment; and where all the adults model—and all the students develop and live—the values of caring, courage, justice, respect, and responsibility.

To generate for students a transformative experience at an age when they are forging their very identities and lifetime aspirations and to cultivate in them the belief that they shape their own destinies: each one worthy of greatness and goodness, each one capable of—and responsible for—serving the community and the world around them.
