George Lucas Educational Foundation


EDWorks believes that every child can succeed in college and in the workplace with the right tools, preparation and support. We offer bold, innovative school designs that have been field tested at high schools in more than 40 districts across seven states. We work closely with these schools, empowering first-generation college-goers and traditionally underserved students to graduate from high school better prepared for college. EDWorks is a partner with schools, customizing programs through one of three models:

  • New Start breathes new life into persistently under-performing schools by creating interest-based academies focused on personalized student achievement.
  • Fast Track early college may be the answer to inspiring students to challenge themselves to go to college better prepared to earn a degree.
  • STEMLab prepares the next generation of innovators by focusing on hands-on, inquiry-based learning in collaboration with scientists, engineers and mathematicians.
