RePublic Isn’t Just an Organization

It’s a movement. It’s a family. It’s an unstoppable force for good to— pardon our idealism—make a massive dent in our country’s most entrenched injustice.

The mission of RePublic Schools is to reimagine public education in the South. RePublic prepares scholars to enter, succeed in, and graduate from college, and operates schools that value innovation and ownership.
