Transformation through education

Ever Brighter Image

While educational technology revolutionizes the way we learn, systematic disparities in access to resources create ever-widening barriers for underserved communities. Located in the fourth-largest school district in the United States, our school is the ideal proving ground to drive transformational education and social change.

Closing the achievement gap

In Florida, about 43 percent of third-grade students are reading below grade level, according to data collected from a recent test taken by students across the state.

Fundraising Priorities

Shaping the classrooms of tomorrow

Our vision for the 21st-century classroom is based on an equitable, inclusive, high-tech framework for teaching and learning. By using and developing the tools of technology—such as augmented reality and technology-based assessment—we can better understand and address the challenges students face.

Advancing educational equity

We are closing the gap by producing outstanding teachers to be change agents and leaders of innovative and effective pedagogy that will enable all children to achieve.

The initiative for aging well

Our goal is to utilize our interdisciplinary strengths in educational, psychological, and physical well-being to incorporate a holistic, community-centered approach to overall wellness. We will partner with the Miller School of Medicine to provide comprehensive approaches to care for the aging population.

Why support matters

Building a more equitable world

With the philanthropic support of individuals and organizations that share our commitment to the educational and social well-being of our communities, we can realize our vision that every individual has the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive.

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
