MISSION, VISION, VALUES

We support our diverse scholars to live full lives and to succeed in college, career, and life.  Scholars will find their purpose and passion so that they can cultivate the critical hope, optimism and leadership essential to be catalysts in their community and world.

Mission

Our graduates build a strong understanding of themselves, envision the world in which they want to live, and develop the agency to access the future of their dreams.  

Vision

VALUES

At Catalyst we aspire to create a school culture that allows scholars and staff to live lives aligned with their passions and purpose in life.  Our values lead this work.

OUR APPROACH

At Catalyst Public Schools, we believe that schools can be catalysts of community change when schools, families, and the larger community come together.  We also believe that each and every one of our scholars has unlimited potential and that they are the leaders of today and the champions of tomorrow.  

Because of this, we intentionally create school environments that prepare our scholars to be leaders and change-makers.  Far too many schools prioritize compliance over engagement and rote memorization over critical thinking and collaboration.  At Catalyst, we are reimagining school to ensure our scholars are prepared for the future.

A scholar's day at Catalyst is designed to ensure that they are engaged in deeper learning and that their learning is personalized.  We leverage a co-teaching model to ensure that scholars and teachers meet in small groups daily so that our teachers can know the needs of each and every scholar.  Programs such as our Change-Maker Space and Wellness + Purpose blocks ensure that scholars cultivate the leadership needed to make positive community change and ensure that our scholars' wholistic wellness is developed.  Each day at Catalyst begins with a period called Sunrise and ends with Sunset so that we support the social and emotional development of our scholars.
