Mission Statement

Endow students with the knowledge, skills, and mindsets necessary to be successful in college preparatory high schools.

Description

Genesis is a nationally recognized school for inner-city youth in Kansas City, Missouri. Since 1975, Genesis has been more than an academic setting preparing students for success. It has been a second home, providing a caring atmosphere structured on the African proverb "it takes a village to raise a child." For Genesis students, the proverb is more than just a catchy statement, it is a functional reality.

Today, Genesis understands what it means to look at students as individuals. After 40 years, staff knows that a caring learning environment actually removes barriers. Striving to promote critical thinking and effective problem solving, teachers challenge students to utilize knowledge gained in a process that promotes self-understanding. Genesis not only addresses the academics in each core subject area, but licensed mental health counselors provide individual and group therapy. Genesis School's outreach to students and parents has resulted in strong and consistent gains in student performance, both academically and socially.
