Build the best educational support system possible, allowing every student an equitable opportunity to succeed.

Our Mission

How we see the World

Education Equity requires support at school, at home, and throughout the community. At the CEB, we are dedicated to building the systems that help students and communities thrive.

At school, this means we offer state-of-the-art facilities, in-house events and programs, libraries, meals, security, and student and teacher supports. Our approach centers on providing our partner schools (onsite and offsite) with tools and resources so they can focus on building their academic programs and changing kids’ lives.

At home this means ensuring parents have access to everything they need to support themselves and their families including healthcare, career supports, technology, and childcare resources. But support doesn’t stop at home–the CEB and its partners are dedicated to building up the entire community through services such as food pantries, health clinics, and more. We know that when we all thrive, our kids thrive!
