School for Tomorrow (SFT) is a groundbreaking, nonprofit, model
independent school committed to serving a diversity of students in
grades 4-12. Founded in 2009 in response to
a critical need for change in secondary education,
SFT uses the most current and compelling research, resources, and
practices from the field of education and beyond to
empower individuals to reach their fullest potential in academics
and in life in the decades ahead. Among the many things that make
SFT a “school unlike any other,” the following three
aspects of SFT stand out:
1. We provide a truly customized education, tailoring the
curriculum to each child’s needs. This means that the most
academically gifted and the below average student can be fully
challenged and grow far beyond where they could in a traditional
2. We provide a holistic education. We recognize that success
in academics and in life is predicated on far more than academic
skills and content knowledge. Without emotional, social, and
physical well-being, one cannot reach their fullest potential.
Therefore, we integrate the development of the emotional, physical,
and social aspects of self into our curriculum and community.
3. We serve a diverse student body. We believe that most
students can benefit from an SFT education. We also believe that
students gain important social and life skills by interacting with
people who are different than them. While other schools are
becoming increasingly specialized, we want to create a school that
mirrors the broader society. Customization allows students to
achieve and be challenged within a diverse setting.
Our methods encourage constant investigation,
analysis, critical thinking, collaboration, and
problem solving. We respect and support students as they take
risks, learn from mistakes, and stretch themselves in an
inclusive environment of mutual caring and respect.
