Who We Are


Our Mission

STC is the largest cross-sector network of urban schools in the country.

We empower the leaders in our network to expand Real-World Learning across their schools.

We develop teachers’ skills and capacity to plan and facilitate Real-World Learning in their classrooms.

We engage students directly in hands-on, relevant, Real-World Learning.

 Our Ecosystem

We create a safe space where teachers and school leaders from urban schools, education innovators, and industry leaders can work together to advance school improvement, breaking down silos to ensure all students are equipped with the skills to succeed in college, career, and life.

We work with more than 170 high-performing and high-potential schools serving over 60,000 students nationwide.
