Our vision:

The world is ours.

Starting in October 2017, a Community Design Team of students, families, educators, and community members met bi-monthly to design an innovative school for the community and by the community. Empower Community High School holds as its vision that our students will claim their rightful place as agents of change, growth and social progress. The world is ours, and we must educate and foster the scholars, writers, artists and innovators who will build a just and equitable world. 


Our Mission

We facilitate an education program that provides authentic real-world work. This work will be informed by community needs and led by students. We will identify challenges and use them as opportunities to solve problems with a fresh and reasoned application of academic and technical skills.
