We envision culturally responsive student-centered communities of learning and positive youth development where adolescents thrive.
We believe youth have an innate human capacity — resilience, that can improve the life trajectories of youth when nurtured with self-agency and persistence.
Our mission is to change education for marginalized student populations and to support effective educator-led initiatives that lead to improvements in the classrooms, at school sites, throughout districts, and in unions.
We are launching a new charter school July 2021. FIN Prep's students will be educated and supported in a culturally- sensitive learning community.
Members of the public have the opportunity to submit feedback, questions and recommendations regarding specific action items and expenditures proposed in our LCAP.
