Organization Overview

Our purpose at Citizens of the World Charter Schools (CWC) is to realize human potential by strengthening the bonds among us and developing true citizens of the world. In this work, we are guided by our core values of Excellence, Authenticity,
Diversity, Community and Change, and our operating norms reflect a commitment to personal and professional growth, including operating as learners, with curiosity, integrity and humility. The mission of Citizens of the World Charter Schools is to impact
and expand the conversation about what an excellent education contains, requires and accomplishes. Citizens of the World schools challenge students to realize their full potential and thrive in a diverse society. We are public schools open to all, committed to
serving diverse communities. We develop sophisticated thinkers who master content and have a courageous and compassionate sense of responsibility for themselves and
others. Our goal is for student “success” to include mastery of both content and
emotions, so that students can meaningfully connect with each other, be part of any
community, and courageously decide who they are in the world and how they want the
world to be. For more information on Citizens of the World Charter Schools, please visit
