Equality was founded on the principle that we cannot afford for any child to get lost in the public educational system.
We believe in meeting our scholars where they are and guiding them on a path that empowers them to choose for themselves.
We promise to give our scholars the tools they need to define their own meaning of what success is, and the tools to achieve it throughout their lives.
