MESSAGE FROM OUR SUPERINTENDENT, FOUNDER AND CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

ScholarMade Achievement Place at the Historic Mitchell Building in Central Little Rock opened its doors to nearly 300 students in August 2018. It has been a priceless journey and a movement of restoration. It was exciting to see the building come back to life and to experience the joy that children bring! 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, they can find a place at ScholarMade – a place where teachers and parents work together to move children to Be More and Achieve More.

This Place Matters. This opportunity matters. This school matters. This community matters. We have ignited a fresh vision in school choice and are closing opportunity gaps 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.
