Charter School Authorizing Program

Inspired by the St. Thomas mission, we believe that quality authorizing assists in the creation and maintenance of quality schools and work toward a reality in which all students and families have access to high-quality educational options whether private, charter or district. The schools that make up the UST Charter Network are held to rigorous academic, financial and organizational standards, and must possess a mission which is compatible with that of the University.

Step-Up Boys Summer Summit

The Step-Up Boys Mentorship Program helps promote student achievement by encouraging students to focus on four educational concepts: Aspirations, Expectations, Opportunities and Achievement. The program is intended to prepare students leaving eighth grade for the increased rigor they will encounter in ninth grade.
