In 2019, Compass Community Schools opened it doors to start a new day in education. Compass Community Schools prepares students for college life and lifelong success by focusing on developing the whole child.
Compass Community Schools is a group of six K – 12 tuition-free, public charter schools proudly serving students in predominately low-income neighborhoods.
Compass follows Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s ideal of education:
“Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education,” our vision is to provide “true education” within a supportive, joyful, and hopeful school culture to prepare all students to be positive agents of change in our communities.
As a charter school, Compass is supported by a federal and state budget. However, this does not fully cover the resources needed to level the learning gap in Memphis.
Help build a “world-class” education for Memphis students that need it most.
