What is it all about?

No Excuses University is a network of elementary, middle, and junior high schools across the United States. These schools actively promote a comprehensive model of college readiness to all students the moment they begin elementary school.

Every No Excuses University has a well-defined process for identifying and creating the following exceptional systems:
  1. Culture of Universal Achievement
  2. Collaboration
  3. Standards Alignment
  4. Assessment
  5. Data Analysis
  6. Interventions
In addition, every No Excuses University campus works diligently to expose students to powerful college symbolism. This symbolism is seen in the college flags and banners hung on every door, felt through the close partnerships forged between classrooms and universities, and heard in the college chants that exist at each grade level.
