Founded Since 2008
The United Schools Network (USN) is a nonprofit organization in Columbus, Ohio. After founding its first school in 2008, it has worked with incredible leaders to open three more schools in ten years. Each USN school is an open enrollment, public charter school that works diligently to close the opportunity gap in Columbus. Moreover, the mission of all USN schools is to transform lives and our communities through the power of education, while maintaining our vision: For every child, an open door. USN currently operates two high-performing elementary schools (K-5) and two high-performing middle schools (6-8) that serve more than 1,000 students. We strive to provide students with a rigorous academic experience in a joyful learning environment, and we work hard to ensure that students of all levels grow and succeed by focusing on intentional student support and continual improvement. USN offers more than just an exceptional education for the students and communities we serve. We support our families and communities with family resource centers at each campus in addition to providing wrap-around services before and after school. Through our alumni services program, we continue to support our students even after they graduate. So far we have distributed microgrants through this program as well as supported alumni across 36 colleges and counting!
