An Excellent education for all.

We are determined to make Washington, DC, the first public education system where race and income do not predict a student’s ability to thrive and succeed.

Our Impact

Our entrepreneurs push the boundaries of the possible, producing schools and educational ventures that move the needle for DC’s most marginalized students. We measure the impact of our work in terms of people, ventures, and systems-change, aiming to cultivate the conditions that allow the entrepreneurs and innovations we support to take root and thrive.
