We Believe in Education

Consistent with ARC’s mission to promote educational excellence and equity for underserved students, families, and communities, our services reflect certain themes and underlying goals. These are:

  1. promoting equity
  2. improving race relations, and
  3. creating conditions for empowerment of underserved groups.

In all services we provide, we use practices and structures that enhance human dignity and respect for one another. Learn more
