For the first time in over four decades, our national education sector is facing the reality that most of America’s children are growing up in low-income homes. In 2011, there were 32.4 million low-income children ages 0-18, up from 28.5 million just five short years earlier.
The growth in low-income children is drastically outpacing the growth in high-quality schools to serve them and prepare them for the future. Without a major change in public education, more and more low-income children will be shut out of the American Dream.
Exalt Education is building a teaching-and-learning network that equips mission-driven educators with the knowledge and tools needed to serve low-income students nationally. We’re dedicated to enabling our students to realize their greatest potential and providing access opportunities to competitive colleges and advanced careers so that they can become tomorrow’s leaders.
Exalt Education serves children from underserved communities – communities where other educational options available to families are frequently of low quality.
We currently have campuses in some of the most under-resourced communities in the Pacific Northwest and the Mid-South. Our schools are tuition-free and open to everyone. Students are accepted regardless of background or academic record on a first-come, first-served basis.
Exalt Education network schools enable students to realize their greatest potential, prepare for competitive colleges and advanced careers, and emerge as tomorrow’s leaders.
For Exalt, our network of public charter schools is just the start. Our broader mission to build a teaching-and-learning network that equips mission-driven educators with the knowledge and tools to serve low-income students nationally is what we are truly about.
We know that for our country to do a better job of preparing low-income children for today’s workforce realities – we need to do more then build schools. What we need to do is pioneer a breakthrough way of educating low-income children, and develop a scalable model to share this way with other mission-driven educators.
A robust teacher interface will soon be our way to share our “Greatest Hits” – the methods we’ve seen proven successful in serving students in high-need communities across the country. We’re looking forward to exchanging knowledge with you that will fuel the transform of public education.
Exalt is building a teaching-and-learning network that equips mission-driven educators with the knowledge and tools to serve low-income students nationally. Our expansion will transform children’s lives and public education – more students will have a brighter future and communities will thrive.
Whether you want to join us as a teacher or student, support us as donor, or engage Exalt in a community near you – we invite you to step up and be the change!
