XQ – The Super School Project
XQ: The Super School Project
The Super School Project is an open call to reimagine and design the next American high school. In towns and cities far and wide, teams will unite and take on this important work of our time: rethinking and building schools that deeply prepare our students for the rigorous challenges of college, jobs, and life.
This is a challenge to empower all of America to change high school. Together, we can transform communities and build schools that inspire new possibilities.
Over the next few months, we will accept your proposals. We will partner with winning teams and provide them expert support and a fund of $50 million to support at least five schools over the next five years to turn their ideas into real Super Schools.
