Oakmont Education is dedicated to changing lives and communities by transforming underserved students through the power of education, and we cannot be silent in the face of injustice.
While we haven't all experienced racism firsthand, many Oakmont team members have, and those who haven't have witnessed for many years the immense challenges our students are faced with due to systemic issues of racism in our country. We believe education is power, but we've also been reminded by the tragic death of George Floyd and so many others that "education" must go far beyond what happens inside of classrooms on a daily basis.
Education is fundamental to combating racial inequality, and to that end, Oakmont will be following in the footsteps of the National Alliance of Public Charter Schools and donating $5,000 to the Equal Justice Initiative.
We mourn the unjust deaths of George Floyd and many others. We stand in solidarity with his family, friends, and the thousands of Black and Brown students and professionals we work alongside each and every day.
The traditional approach to high school just doesn’t work for a lot of Akron students.
That’s why we designed a high school as unique as you are. Towpath Trail High School East Campus is different from other schools.
