More About Us

At Schools for Children, Inc., we believe that the best education starts with respect for students as individuals. Guided by this philosophy, our dedicated faculty and staff respond to each child’s unique potential, abilities and needs—whatever those may be. 

It is because of our unwavering focus on each student’s ability to succeed that they and our schools thrive. 

As a management group, we provide high-quality administrative and professional expertise. This frees our teachers, counselors, heads of school and others working directly with students to focus on the much more important activity of educating children. 

As a thought leader, we advocate for educational quality and equity. We work to fill the gaps in education by creating, piloting and supporting new programs.

And we offer support and resources for educators, families and others in our community that lead to educational innovation.
