Change History with Uncommon

Support Our Students and Staff

Across our 53 schools, over 20,000 students are receiving an Uncommon education from devoted teachers, leaders, and staff who are determined to deliver our schools’ powerful mix of rigorous academics and joyful school culture.


Our founding mission in 1997 remains our driving purpose today: to empower young people from traditionally marginalized backgrounds to get to and through college in order to achieve economic freedom.

Your donations will provide opportunities to foster intellectual curiosity, cultivate meaningful student-teacher relationships, and prioritize student wellness. From our newest kindergarten students to our seniors on the brink of college, each one of our students can feel your care and commitment. We are deeply thankful for your support.


When you give to Uncommon Schools, you support our mission. Thank you for helping us to provide an outstanding education that puts students from under-served communities on the path to college graduation.
