Our Educational Philosophy 

The Coolnerds concept is a community model where a small cohort of youth are led by passionate educators, full of integrity. We lead and teach from a Christ and Afro centered perspective and our curriculum is developed creatively around the needs of the students and families we serve. The school-prison-pipeline is real as are the various entities (see chart) seeking to exploit the physical and intellectual properties of our youth. We have created a real solution to educational chaos.

The Coolnerds Mission

Our mission is: to teach a man to teach a man to fish. We know that youth must be trained to utilize their God-given gifts to make a difference for their children’s children. Therefore, we place a high value on reading, math, writing, thinking, and self-control while upholding the highest levels of integrity in order to ensure we are all doing our part. We have policies outlining expectations that supports the role of our parents so that our goals manifest.
