Mission and Impact

Our Mission: PAVE Schools prepares Prekindergarten to 8th grade students to thrive in competitive high schools and four-year colleges. PAVE provides its students with a rigorous academic program and a community built on the school’s core values of Perseverance, Achievement, Vibrance and Excellent Character (PAVE).


Our Core Values

  • Perseverance: We never lose sight of our aspirations or give up, especially in the face of adversity. Everyday is a new day.
  • Achievement: We set high aspirations for both today and tomorrow. We understand that achievement is a product of every choice we make at each moment in the day. We build on our successes and failures—brick by brick.
  • Vibrance: We engage in our passions and celebrate our achievements. We live life with purpose and vigor. Our enthusiasm is evident and we encourage both others and ourselves.
  • Excellent character: We hold ourselves to high moral standards and are honest and respectful citizens and scholars. Our actions represent our families, our school, our community, and ourselves.



PAVE was founded on the belief that a strong school can transform a community. PAVE focuses its efforts in neighborhoods where students have historically struggled to prepare children to graduate from high school. PAVE offers a comprehensive, high-quality academic program. PAVE opened its first school August 2008 and now operates two schools serving nearly 410 Kindergarten through 7th grade students in Red Hook, Brooklyn. PAVE will be serving an additional 120 students in Raleigh, NC beginning in the 2015-2016 school year. PAVE has the ability to have a tremendous impact on their scholars.
