Canarsie Ascend Charter School

District: CSD 18
Authorizer: SUNY
Partner Organization: Ascend Learning, Inc.

The proposed mission of Canarsie Ascend is to equip every student with the knowledge, confidence, and character to succeed in college and beyond. Students will, from the earliest grades, steadily build a strong foundation of learning habits, critical thinking skills, and knowledge; excel academically as they progress through the program, mastering high-level math and science; and graduate as confident young adults, prepared to succeed as college students, citizens, and leaders in their chosen fields.

The founders will implement the following key design elements in pursuit of the school’s mission:

  • use of the SABIS educational system including a college-preparatory curriculum that is tightly linked to an electronic assessment system, innovative pedagogical protocols, tools for building a transformative school culture, and state-of-the-art school management software;
  • the implementation of the No Excuses school culture, which endeavors to assertively shape students’ habits, values, and aspirations; and
  • a college preparatory environment of high expectations for all students.
