CLASS was started in 2015 as a national association of high school principals with the mission of ensuring the nation’s best and brightest students, regardless of income, have the skills and knowledge to succeed in school and the workforce. Our two main priorities is closing the academic excellence gap between low-income and high-income students of equal ability, and building the school to workforce pipeline. We are working diligently to expand opportunities for students of all backgrounds – socioeconomic, race, gender – and to build a school-to-workforce pipeline. We’re committed to providing you, your teachers, and your students with the best resources, relationships and programs to foster exceptional learning environments.
