Mission of Paul Cuffee School

Paul Cuffee School, a K-12 public charter school of choice, educates a diverse community of students from Providence, Rhode Island. We respect each individual and the world we share. This quality of our community is central to our mission.

In the spirit of Paul Cuffee’s life, we teach students to value and practice personal initiative, perseverance, and social responsibility. Our School accomplishes these goals through a rigorous academic program which, enriched with maritime experiences, fosters discovery and critical thinking. We prepare students for higher education, lifelong learning, and active citizenship.
