Sustainable Futures Public Charter School (SFPCS) is a Competency-Based, Project-Based, Next Generation High-School with a mission to serve the At-Promise Youth of the District by re-engaging students in learning and their community as they obtain a HS Diploma. Opening in September 2017, Sustainable Futures PCS will serve students ages 14 and above, with 125 students in year one and 288 students by year three.  

SFPCS is founded on the core values of community, diversity, innovation, inquiry, service, and reflection. Our school culture is based on open, trusting, and growth-oriented relationships.  We are committed to creating a school in which our core values are visible each day through the ways in which we interact with one another and engage in the learning process collectively.
