The mission of Zeta Charter Schools is to build and sustain high-performing schools that forge thriving communities of lifelong learners, problem solvers, and innovators. Zeta launched in NYC with two public charter schools in the 2018-2019 school year, with plans to grow to approximately twenty elementary, middle, and high schools serving Pre-K-12th grades. Zeta Schools are committed to:

  • Academically Rigorous Education for a Modern Workforce. Zeta combines the best of an academically rigorous education, focused on critical thinking and problem solving, with cutting edge technology and tools. Students excel academically and work to solve the problems of the future, creating and inventing in “innovation laboratories” and developing coding fluency. Zeta invests in serving the particular needs of at-risk, high-needs, English Language Learner, special education, and advanced populations, with an aim to diversify the approach in order to mine their unique and highest potential.

  • Mindfulness and Wellness. Zeta Schools promote an environment of mindfulness for students, staff, and families. Mindfulness fosters kindness and serves as the foundation for a respectful school community. It further teaches students the value of treating others in a manner they would want to be treated and to learn self-regulation. Students engage in invigorating daily physical activity and learn healthy habits, and all members of the school community are encouraged to practice and model healthy habits to maximize their own well being.

  • High-Performance, People-First Culture. We are focused on hiring and developing great people and maintaining high expectations to enable team members to grow personally and professionally. Zeta cultivates a high-performance culture that fosters extraordinary outcomes, innovation, efficiency, and productivity, while practicing a sustainable people-first culture. With professional development every year, we put our efforts where we think the biggest returns are: our people. The people-first culture extends to our community as well—we embrace family involvement in order to best serve the needs of individual children.
