Concentric Educational Solutions started with the belief that ALL students deserve not only a quality education, but also quality non-instructional support systems that are necessary for success. There is no singular solution. Rather, it’s a concerted effort to continuously support students in their journey of academic success and mental wellness.
With this belief in mind, a team of dedicated educators created an integrated model of student support that would fundamentally put students at the core of school functioning.
With a grant from NewSchools Venture Fund in 2010, Concentric Educational Solutions started piloting its approach with four schools in Washington D.C. As one of the first African American-led organizations to receive funding from NewSchools, the task to create a significant impact on public education was paramount.
Ten years and 200,000 home visits later, Concentric Educational Solutions has refined its model and broadened its services, but the founding educators have never forgotten that students are at the center of the educational journey.
