Celebrate Compass 2019
Join us to support Compass Charter School at CELEBRATE COMPASS, a night of food, music, comedy, and fun on Friday, April 12 at BRIC House (647 Fulton St, Brooklyn, NY 11217).
Our fifth annual CELEBRATE COMPASS will include:
An entertainment line up of DJs and comedians
Delicious food from the teams at Colonia Verde and R&D Foods
A silent and live auction
Annual after party at Frank’s
CELEBRATE COMPASS brings together the Compass community to connect and to raise funds to support our inquiry-driven, progressive model. Compass has created an inclusive, diverse environment where students receive additional support not commonly found within public schools in New York City. Compass’ model - including two teachers in every classroom, inquiry-based curriculum, interdisciplinary projects, and a focus on arts and sustainability - requires additional resources above and beyond the public funding the school receives. Your support at CELEBRATE COMPASS and throughout the year makes realizing the full Compass vision for student learning possible.

A little bit about our history:
Seven years ago, the founders of Compass Charter School spent a year observing and researching some of the best schools in America, Italy and Finland before using their research to create the model for Compass. When they began their work, Compass Charter School and The Odyssey Initiative were just visions in their minds. As the Odyssey grew, hundreds of supporters from across the world offered support by recommending schools, editing videos, designing websites and flyers, offering legal, strategic and development advice, hosting informational sessions, and donating to the Odyssey. Now, Compass is celebrating its first year at full capacity, and is a thriving community with students, teachers, families, volunteers, and community partners.
