As a network, we believe in starting early with the end in mind. Our academic vision calls for putting our scholars on a predictive path to college. While test score data informs our progress towards goals - we know that success is truly measured by progress toward our North Star to College Completion, our organizational framework to regularly measure progress; a standard that is superior to, and inclusive of, any district, city, state, or national standard. The five points on the North Star are College Knowledge, Academic Achievement, Character Development, Organizational Stability and Staff Engagement, and Family and Scholar Satisfaction. Each prong on the North Star is necessary, but not sufficient to scholar success.
