Parents and Educators...it can be done! Build the change you want to see by innovating education.
Step-by-Step Guidance so You Can Open Your Doors
Our 7-week course teaches you exactly what you need to create your micro-school and open your doors in no time. Your $200 fee for the program is a donation that creates equity, going directly to help Bullock Garden Project in New Jersey open a micro-school for disadvantaged youth. You get coaching and a cohort of support while helping another like-minded program and making a tax-exempt donation! It’s a win-win for our kids!

Creating Micro-Schools for Colorful Mismatched Kids
A Step-by-Step Process that Empowers Frustrated Parents to Innovate Education
A few years ago, a parent at our founding school, LEADPrep, laughingly described our kids pouring out into the parking lot as happy mismatched socks. That definition that describes our unique and wonderful kids has stuck.
To support more communities in building a micro-school, our founder has written a how-to micro-school guidebook in three parts: The first tells of the need for more options for students. The second provides seven steps to opening a micro-school. The third part tells how our very own LEADPrep followed those seven steps and opened its doors.
