Message from Our Founder and CEO

ScholarMade Achievement Place at the Historic Mitchell Building opened its doors to nearly 300 students in August 2018.  It has been a priceless journey and a movement of restoration.  It is exciting to see the building come back to life! Built in 1908, the year that Thurgood Marshall was born, it is symbolic of battles fought for choice.

The majestic building overlooks a beautiful community. It is a testament that all children, regardless of their economic status, instructional needs, or previous academic challenges can find a place at ScholarMade –  a place where teachers and parents will work together to move children to achieve more.

This Place Matters. This opportunity matters. This school matters. This community matters. It is time to ignite a fresh vision in school choice, increase student achievement, and close the opportunity gap which is crucial for our children.  Our name, ScholarMade, is a constant call to remember that all children are valuable and all children can be brilliant. Our educational mission is to cultivate Scholars who will be equipped to solve academic and societal problems

We want to partner with those who have a heart for children, the moral courage to disrupt mediocrity, and the desire to influence others to rethink the possibilities of what a child can become.

Welcome Home!
