The mission of Great Oaks Charter Schools is to prepare students to succeed in college. What sets Great Oaks Charter Schools apart from other charters is the use of a high-dosage tutoring model implemented by the Great Oaks Tutors Corps, a group of recent college graduates dedicating a year of service, who provide daily tutoring to every student. At Great Oaks, we are committed to providing a rigorous academic program, fostering a positive school culture and building authentic relationships with families. Read More

  • About Us
    Great Oaks Charter Schools is currently a network of 5 schools which are located in NYC, Newark, NJ, Bridgeport, CT and Wilmington, DE. We serve children in 6th-12th grade. Each of our students in addition to regular classroom instruction receives 4 class periods of math tutoring and 4 class periods of ELA/literacy tutoring per week that is built into their regular class schedule. We recruit a large cohort of recent college graduates to serve full-time in our schools as tutors for the duration of one school year.
  • Our Impact
    Many of our students enter our schools several years behind their grade level in math and ELA. Through our high-dosage tutoring we are able to see significant academic growth in our students. We strongly believe that all children can go to college when they are given the proper support and individualized attention to get them there.
