Black School Founders Network

Join our National Network!

We are creating a Black School Founders Network, so you can come together for fellowship and professional growth.

We know how hard it is to operate a school and educate young minds. By meeting and learning from other Black school founders, our hope is that you feel more supported and less alone in your mission.

Why This Matters

Nourishing Black minds with a rich education is one essential way we can work as a community to combat generational poverty and societal inequities.
