Great public schools create opportunity and make our society more equitable and successful for all


Green Dot purposefully locates its schools in the communities of highest need within our geographical reach. Our schools are small, supportive environments prioritizing the needs of all students. Our work is guided by an unwavering belief in the potential of every student to graduate prepared for college, leadership, and life. 

In the 21st Century, a college degree is the primary lever for American social mobility. Today, 72% of Green Dot’s graduates immediately enroll in college from communities where 2-4% of residents currently have a Bachelor’s degree. Since our founding, Green Dot has sent nearly 16,500 students to college.

Green Dot schools prepare students for entry to competitive four-year colleges. Our students, from the lowest-income communities in Los Angeles, Memphis, and Beaumont, TX are matching the performance of peers in Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, and Palo Alto. Their capacity is unlimited, and access to a good school is transformational.
