Mission Statement

The mission of The Houston A+ Challenge is to promote an academically rich and purposeful education for more of our children and to demonstrate how such an education could become possible for all our children.

Description

A not-for-profit public, private partnership, the Houston A+ Challenge directs the largest single sum of private money ever dedicated to public school reform in the Greater Houston area.

The Challenge develops and funds school programs, professional development and leadership institutes to promote higher academic achievement by all students using the principles of Whole School Reform.

Houston A+ has been working to support and transform public schools in the Houston area since 1997. In schools, Houston A+ works at all levels, from kindergarten to college. In the community, Houston A+ works with a broad array of groups from corporations to community-based organizations and from museums to foundations. With the support of Houston's business and philanthropic communities, Houston A+ has been working with its partners to develop teachers and other educators as leaders in the community, in the schools, and in their content areas.
