Mission: The mission of Resiliency Foundation is to collaborate with school districts to create an environment that nurtures the potential in all students through school and beyond. The Resiliency Foundation is redefining secondary education to meet the needs of the students, breaking away from the traditional model to catch students where they are today and prepare them for tomorrow. The Resiliency Foundation believes that every young person has the potential for greatness, and the Foundation helps them achieve their potential through four key principles: A Student-First Culture, Innovative Curricula Design, A Community of Us, and A Focus on Discovery.
