Greetings Uplift families,
I have already visited four campuses for my annual town hall appearances across the network. Each year Uplift campuses graciously host me so I can better connect with the unique needs of our individual parent communities. While our communities differ with regard to geography, age, location, size and community demographics, they all share a common trait. Uplift Education parents chose our schools because they wanted a quality, college preparatory education for their children. I would like to provide a couple of reminders on what has made Uplift schools a quality college preparatory education for 20 years.
Our commitment to the International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum makes Uplift Education one of the largest public school IB options in the nation. Every Uplift school is either authorized or in the process toward authorization. We feel IB is the best way to prepare scholars for the global workplace, grow a scholars capacity to think creatively and critically, while setting high standards for academic growth. Recent authorizations of Uplift schools include: Uplift Peak Primary, Uplift Pinnacle Primary, Uplift Summit Primary, Uplift Hampton Primary, Uplift Luna Primary and Secondary, and Uplift Heights Secondary. The path to authorization can be a years long rigorous process and we are excited for all of our newly authorized campuses.
Another differentiation we offer our scholars and families is our unparalleled preparation and focus on college. Beginning in primary, our scholars recognize college as an attainable option for their future after high school. Scholars entering sixth grade are a part of our
Road to College
program which increases college exposure to our middle school and high school scholars. Uplift high school scholars have an opportunity unlike any other school option in our area. Our Road to College team helps high school scholars with the process of getting to college and persisting through college. With the support of campus Road to College counselors, scholars navigate the college application process, obtain grants and scholarships, and receive ongoing support to persist through college.
At Uplift, our goal is college success for all scholars. We feel our flagship Road to College program in association with an IB curricular framework, prepares our scholars to be successful in college and beyond. Thank you for your dedication to your child's education and for all of the dedication you show to your children.
Chief Executive Officer
