Who We Are

The focus of Navigator Schools is to improve our communities through education. Navigator's mission is to equip students to be learners and leaders in high school, college, and beyond.  We develop top-tier teams of educators who continuously improve and innovate schools that deliver phenomenal outcomes for all students, regardless of their circumstances.
Our students will be prepared to excel in class, on standardized tests, in college, and in every aspect of their lives. The pillars of our mission infuse how we teach, how we work together, and how we partner with our community and education peers.
Student centered, standards driven.
All students deserve the opportunity to receive an excellent education. Our schools' high academic standards and instructional rigor instill a love of the challenge and a determination to succeed. A Navigator classroom creates a passion for learning, inspiration, and understanding that lasts a lifetime.
"Someday" is NOW.
Navigator was born when a group of educators and parents in Gilroy, California refused to wait for someone else to take on educational reform. We are obsessed with demonstrating that the tools necessary to eliminate the achievement gap have been discovered and can be implemented in schools across America. Our goal is to create classrooms full of successful, thriving students where all students achieve at their highest potential.
Navigator Schools now operate two campuses, Gilroy Prep (est. 2011) and Hollister Prep (est. 2013). Thanks to the efforts of leadership, teachers, staff, students, and parents, these two schools are models of change and hope for the many visitors that tour our schools. Students are assessed daily in core subjects and intervention is immediate. We use Whole Brain Teaching methods to engage students one hundred percent of the time. We have active, supportive parent clubs and our beautiful libraries are stocked with hundreds of books. These are just few of the qualities that make our campuses special.
Collaborative, not competitive.
Navigator Schools has studied dozens of the best schools in America to come up with our unique style of education. Now it's our turn to share. We hope our shared commitment to improving children's futures will become common ground between Navigator Schools, parents, and school districts across the nation. We know any educator can use and adapt our strategies in any classroom setting. Schedule a visit and join in a partnership with Navigator.
