Uplift Education is the largest public charter school network in North Texas. Established in 1996 with one school in Irving, we have now grown to a network serving nearly 16,000 scholars in pre-k through 12th grade on 17 campuses across the D/FW metroplex. Our schools have received national recognition and 100% of our graduates have been accepted to college.
Each school provides free, college-preparatory education in a community that has limited high quality public education options. Our goal is to completely CLOSE the achievement gap between students, regardless of their ethnic or socio-economic background, while ensuring that 100% of our students graduate and enroll in college. Uplift’s big goal is for 70% of its graduates to earn a college degree within six years.
Uplift's mission is to create and sustain public schools of excellence that empower students to reach their highest potential in college and the global marketplace and that inspire in students a life-long love of learning, achievement, and service in order to positively change their world.
