Our Promise

Achievement First exists to address the legacy of systemic racism in education and believes that all of America’s children—regardless of race, zip code, or economic status—deserve access to great schools.  Our mission is to prepare our students to deepen their knowledge of self and community, to excel at college, career, and life, and to lead lives of purpose and leadership.
