we offer a series of year-round programS that empower education entrepreneurs to move their dreams from idea to reality.  All of our programs ARE SIDE-HUSTLER-FRIENDLY, offering the opportunity to EXPLORE SCHOOL LAUNCH WITHOUT QUITTING YOUR DAY JOB.

BETA LAB

Beta Lab is the first step in building your school. Beta Lab is a weekend workshop focused on issues of race & equity, school model design, and community engagement. You will be introduced to what it takes to launch a school and be successful. You will also gather feedback from students, parents, peers, and neighborhood leaders to help you move your idea forward. By the end of Beta, you’ll develop a plan to pilot your bold ideas and deepen key relationships. Of our 44 Beta Lab alumni over the past year, we're especially proud that 95% are leaders of color or women (with 70% leaders of color)

Sign up here for Beta Lab.

DELTA LAB

Once you have completed the performance tasks in Beta Lab, you'll be invited to Delta Lab. Delta is an intensive three-month program that supports you to establish and deepen your relationships with key community leaders, refine your instructional vision, and ultimately run a pop-up school that yields invaluable feedback on your model. In Delta Lab, you’ll have access to coaching from experts and a network of community leaders that will help you refine and implement a prototype of your school model in your target neighborhood. 

THE REFRAME FELLOWSHIP

The Reframe Labs Fellowship is a competitive two-year cohort program that empowers you to launch your school quickly, efficiently, and effectively. In the Fellowship, you'll get $50,000 in startup funding, connections to key follow-on funders, leadership development training, school model design support, community connections, and full guidance throughout the authorization process. All training and coaching is delivered via weekend workshops, learning excursions, virtual training and 1:1 coaching sessions. Participants may be invited to participate in the Fellowship once they have completed the performance tasks in Delta Lab.
