The “Big Push for Small Schools” campaign is a multi-year initiative aimed at catalyzing innovation and growth in microschool models. These microschools, rooted in a historical tradition of cooperative and small-scale learning, are envisioned to become diverse, sustainable, and impactful alternatives within the educational landscape.

This campaign focuses on promoting quality, equity, and accessibility by fostering a network of microschool leaders, providing technical assistance, and offering grants to propel the development of these innovative learning environments. See our website for more details.
