WELCOME TO UPLIFT EDUCATION

Uplift Education is the largest, FREE public charter school network in North Texas. Established in 1996 with one school in Irving, we have now grown to a network serving nearly 21,000 scholars in pre-k through 12th grade on 21 campuses across the D/FW metroplex. Our schools have received national recognition and 100% of our graduates have been accepted to college.

Each school provides free, college-preparatory education in a community that has limited high-quality public education options. Our goal is to completely CLOSE the achievement gap between students, regardless of their ethnic or socio-economic background, while ensuring that 100% of our students graduate and enroll in college. Uplift’s big goal is for 70% of its graduates to earn a college degree within six years.
