Breaking down walls.
Building up kids, caregivers, and communities.
Get Started with BRICK
BRICK’s mission is to relentlessly knock down all barriers to students’ academic success. Our innovative model aligns an excellent education with the necessary family supports to make sure each child succeeds.
We bring together a strong academic program, culturally sustaining practices, and the necessary public systems to help children and families achieve their dreams. We believe this holistic, coordinated approach can close the achievement gap and break the cycle of poverty, ensuring that children and families living in underserved communities receive the support they need to leverage their knowledge, culture, and identity to disrupt systems of oppression.
We are more than a school. We have built rich community partnerships with more than 30 organizations to expand and deepen programs that lift families and children. In addition, initiatives like the South Ward Promise Neighborhood offer free programs and services to all children in our neighborhood for support at every stage of development from prenatal to college and career.
Our support services that extend well beyond the classroom, include:
Access to quality healthcare, ensuring BRICK scholars are healthy and ready to learn.
Family Case Management/Workforce Development
Services that address the social and mental health needs of families in our network, including skill development and job opportunities.
Stabilizing families and reducing the transient rate by providing access to homes that families can afford.
A robust early childhood (Ages 0-5) pipeline for families in the network, with an emphasis on pre-kindergarten education and programming for new parents.
