Charter School Spotlight: Great Oaks Charter School

 

Great Oaks-Wilmington has open seats for incoming 6th graders! Great Oaks has three existing campuses in Newark, NJ, New York City, and Bridgeport, CT. Its Wilmington campus will open this fall with 200 6th graders in the new Community Education Building. Great Oaks offers a rigorous, college-prep program, with a focus on individualized learning. Each student receives two hours of free tutoring every day in Math and Reading. Great Oaks will expand one grade level each year and, at full capacity, will serve grades 6-12. The Great Oaks mission is based on three major pillars:  

Unrelenting College Focus

A strong focus on building relationships with families and highly individualized instruction delivered by our Tutor Corps ensures that every student receives a high-quality education. Our schools have a culture of high academic and behavioral expectations, predicated on the belief that every child can learn and earn a degree from a competitive four-year institution.

Redefining High-Quality Teacher Training

Partnering with NYU, we created the Great Oaks Teacher Residency, which provides a pathway to teaching certification and a Master’s degree through a blend of coursework, mentoring and significantly more practical experience than a traditional theory-based graduate school of education.

Investing in Communities

The Great Oaks Foundation is committed to the vitality of the communities in which our schools operate. The shape this takes depends upon the needs of the community.
