Member Spotlight

Blackstone Valley Prep

Blackstone Valley Prep (BVP) Mayoral Academy is a growing network of tuition-free public charter schools in northern Rhode Island serving 1,800 scholars in grades [...]

Join Diverse Charters

Our approval and vetting process is designed to find member schools and networks that are committed to recruiting, enrolling, and serving a diverse and integrated student body reflective of their broader community.

We are looking for schools that demonstrate thoughtful work to promote high academic outcomes for students of all backgrounds; hire and train a diverse group of teachers and leaders; create a school culture in which all students and families feel welcomed, respected, and included; and confront institutional racism. We see school integration as ongoing work.

Our member schools don’t have all the answers; rather, we seek members that are reflective about their own strengths and challenges in the areas outlined above and are committed to constant striving to improve their efforts and outcomes with respect to diversity and integration.

The Coalition is being built by and for our members. In addition to the programming and supports provided by the Coalition, all members are expected to lean in and take ownership of the DCSC in what we can offer each other. We ask members to reflect on the supports, from programmatic to financial, that will ensure we build a more sustainable and effective organization.

Interested in Joining? Complete the following short survey. DCSC staff will follow up to invite schools to start the membership application cycle. We currently hold two application cycles for prospective members, one in the fall and one in the spring.

PLEASE NOTE: In order to be eligible to apply, schools still in the process of opening must have students enrolled within one year of submitting an application. You can also get updates about the Coalition by signing up for our Newsletter.
