The GO Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the launch and support of high performing charter schools. There are three components to its mission:
to prepare students for college success;
to train highly effective classroom teachers; and
to invest in the communities in which its schools operate.
What sets Great Oaks Charter Schools apart from other college preparatory charters is a high-dosage tutoring model. The Great Oaks Tutor Corps is a selective cadre of recent college graduates who deliver at least two hours of individualized instruction to every student every day. This approach was inspired by the Match School of Boston, which has a proven track record of success using the Tutor Corps model. A select group of the tutors at Great Oaks are enrolled in a Teacher Residency program that is being conducted in partnership with NYU’s Steinhardt School of Education.
