Our mission is to educate youth in small, relationship-based programs that emphasize personal responsibility, academics, and service to the community.


Engage. Educate. Empower.


Open Meadow is a private, non-profit, accredited, educational organization serving youth who have not fared well in the public schools. Many of our students dropped out of public school. Many struggled with attendance, academic, or disciplinary issues. We believe that all of them deserve a quality education.

We educate students in small middle and high school programs and provide an array of transition services that help students move smoothly from middle school to high school and from high school to college and career. In 2009–10, Open Meadow served nearly 900 youth in our programs.

At Open Meadow, students find

* small community-learning environments * respectful, caring, and dedicated teachers * support to overcome previous barriers to success * classes that accommodate a variety of learning styles and skill levels
