Shared Values — a cause and an action.
Mission: Blue Engine partners with public high schools serving low-income communities to increase academic rigor and prepare dramatically greater numbers of students for postsecondary success.
About: Blue Engine is an innovative education service model working in partnership with public high schools serving low-income communities to give teachers access to trained Blue Engine Teaching Assistants (BETAs) for an entire school year. Working alongside teams of 3-4 BETAs, teachers have the instructional bandwidth and efficiency to teach a more rigorous academic curriculum that equips students with the college ready skills in mathematics, literacy, and social cognition. Our unique instructional program focuses on building strong academic foundations in high school in order to ensure that high school graduates from low-income communities are prepared for the intellectual challenges of higher education.
