We are Propel Schools

Propel Schools is a network of public charter schools that transforms the lives of children in underserved communities through innovative, student-centered learning. Propel sets a standard for creating productive citizens by prioritizing academic excellence and fundamental life skills. Based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Propel has become one of the largest, fastest-expanding charter school systems since it was established in 2003. Today Propel serves 4,000 scholars at 13 Allegheny County locations.


Propel Homestead is designated as a community school. Through a set of partnerships with other community resources, Propel Homestead maintains an integrated focus on academics, health and social services, youth and community development, and community engagement. Scholars are physically, socially, and emotionally healthy. Scholars learn in a safe and supportive environment. This approach leads to improved scholar learning while supporting stronger families and healthier communities.

Community schools contain a host of opportunities and supports built-in that give scholars and families the tools they need to learn and grow.
