Mission Statement

Rooted School will be a network of high schools in New Orleans and beyond that prepares students for their most rigorous career path after high school on the path toward financial freedom. Our first school will focus on building career pathways into the digital media sector.

Description

We execute this mission through our Three Branches--Practice, Pathways, and Possibilities.

Practice: For half the school day, students rotate through their general education classes online through comprehensive digital curriculum, caled Edgenuity, at their own pace while teachers provide push-in and pull-out supports.

Pathways: The other half of the school day, students engage in industry-focused project-based learning experiences designed by Rooted's teachers and industry partners. Students solve community problems through their projects and, in the process, can graduate with an advanced industry credential in the technological sectors and gain entry-level employment with one of Rooted's industry partners.

Possibilities: Success for Rooted is if, upon graduation, a student presents acceptance to a post-secondary institutional program or job offer for entry-level employment with one of its partners.
