From Propel Schools

Propel Schools is a network of public charter schools that transforms the lives of children in underserved communities through innovative, scholar-centered learning. Propel sets a standard for creating productive citizens by prioritizing academic excellence and fundamental life skills. Based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Propel has become one of the largest, charter school systems in Pennsylvania since it was established in 2003. Today Propel serves 4,000 scholars at 13 Allegheny County locations. Our K-2 Reading Initiative ensures that every Propel scholar is reading at or above grade level by the time they graduate from second grade. This creates a strong foundation for success as they continue to grow with Propel Schools. In high school, scholars interested in Career Pathways can earn up to 31 college credits, free of charge. Career tracks including nursing and culinary arts. At Propel, our educators redefine school while our scholars defy expectations!

Redefine School. Defy Expectations.

Propel rejects the idea that poverty or ethnicity determines life outcomes. Our STEAM curriculum extends into our FREE Afterschool Program. Every scholar is provided with school-based emotional support to help them succeed. Our quest for excellence is why our staff takes a scholar-centered approach to instruction that encourages scholars to take ownership of their learning.
