CityBridge Announces 16 New Breakthrough Schools

On December 1, CityBridge announced nearly $650K in seed grants to 16 DCPS and public charter schools in Washington, D.C., as a part of the Breakthrough Schools: D.C. school design challenge. These grants mark the launch of CityBridge’s next chapter of investments in D.C. schools: a commitment to incubating 25 new or radically redesigned schools across the next five years.

Investments that Drive Change

CityBridge Education invests to accelerate educational change. We find, incubate, and invest in the most promising practices in public education. Together with many partners, our goal is to create transformational schools that are accessible and available to all children in Washington, D.C.

Help drive change in D.C.

Success at scale will require a relentless, sustained commitment from all stakeholders—parents, educators, business and civic leaders, philanthropists. Together, we can transform public education in the nation’s capital.
