What Guides Us

Having strong core values has been the pillar of our success from the beginning.

Our Mission: To ensure each scholar reaches individual academic and personal success through a nurturing scholar-centered approach.

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.

Our Superpowers

“Mr. Goodbridge is a tough and strict teacher and he has a personality that will make you feel like a better person about yourself.”

— Tajah Stephens, 7th Grade

Passion Led Us Here

Founded in 2009 by Caitlin Franco, our Middle School currently serves 270 scholars in grades 6-8.

In September 2014, we expanded our impact by opening a High School which currently serves 360 scholars in grades 9-12.

From the beginning, Equality Charter School has provided essential academic, social, and emotional support to our community in the Bronx.

Today, we are working on plans for the next phase of Equality: an expansion to Elementary School, that will serve 540 scholars in grades K-5.

We see endless possibilities of what Equality can provide for our scholars and community.
