For Phoenix Founder Beth Anderson, that support began in 2005 when she recruited a small group of revolutionary leaders who shared her vision for a small charter school in Chelsea that would create a new, radical model for alternative education.
As the school’s vision evolved and gained momentum, it became clear that the need was not unique to Chelsea, as many other Gateway Cities across the Commonwealth struggle to provide great educational opportunities for their youth. We’ve only begun to answer the call and are hoping to serve 1,000 students in the next 5-7 years. With these new schools, we will allow more young people to receive the hope, scholarship, and opportunity that they deserve – not just in Chelsea, Lawrence and Springfield – but all over Massachusetts.
If you believe in our mission, our vision, and, most importantly, the incredible potential of our scholars, we invite you to support our efforts.
