|Unlocking Potential (UP) is a nonprofit school management organization whose mission is to rapidly transform chronically underperforming district schools into extraordinary schools that sustain high achievement over time. Our schools ensure that students acquire the knowledge, skills, and strength of character necessary to succeed on the path to college and to achieve their full potential.
We have restarted and now manage four schools in Boston and Lawrence, educating more than 1,500 of the most at-risk children in our nation. In fall 2014, we will restart and manage our fifth school, UP Academy Holland, located in the Bowdoin-Geneva neighborhood of Boston. For more information on UP Academy Holland, click here.
Unlocking Potential was named the 2013 U.S. Education Reform Organization of the Year by NewSchools Venture Fund.
