Community Partners

We actively partner with organizations who believe in empowering children to thrive and be successful for what’s next in their lives and that together we can build a better, more just world.

From our connection to an American Friends Service Committee summer work camp in 1969 to our many current community partners, we have joined forces with a variety of groups, nonprofits, and ministries to advance equity and support our students in learning and living with purpose.
