This rating was published 11/01/2017 and includes data from FY2016, the most recent 990 received at that time.

Open School is a rigorous college-prep program for amazing kids who need something different than traditional school. We know which kids are most likely to drop out. We find them and surround them with what they need to graduate and get ahead: academics, equity and advocacy.

Open School's mission is to develop connection, capability, and confidence in disconnected youth through relationship-based, quality learning experiences that result in academic, personal, and community success.
