Every Philadelphia family should have the opportunity to send their children to a great school

Our mission is to improve outcomes for low-income students and respond to the demand of families by expanding access to great schools. In pursuing our mission, we leverage our investments in three primary ways:

Investing in Great Schools

PSP is increasing the number of high-performing schools and creating the conditions for great schools to thrive.

Developing Skilled Urban Educators

PSP invests in programs that prepare and develop teachers and leaders for the rigors of working in urban schools.


PSP is leveling the playing field for Philadelphia families by providing the information needed to discover the best schools for their children.
