About Us

Every child deserves 

a shot at the American dream.

Our History
Promise Schools was created in 2013 with a specific mandate: to ensure all scholars can confidently pursue all of their life’s aspirations. This work is our purpose - to empower the pursuit of happiness.  Access to quality education is the critical first step and the promise of opportunity is at the heart of the Promise School's identity. Every student, regardless of race, circumstance, and socioeconomic status deserves an opportunity to live this Promise.
Today, the expanding Promise Schools network includes three schools. Two in Northwest Detroit and one in Highland Park. Each of these schools represents another chapter in a success story still being written.

Our Core Values


We start each of our relationships with respect, providing everyone the dignity and sympathetic hearing that we would expect for ourselves. We listen to one another, are considerate of one another’s points of view and feelings, and show gratitude for one another.
