Who We Are

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.

Navigator Schools currently operates Gilroy Prep School, Hayward Collegiate Charter School, Hollister Prep School, and Watsonville Prep School. It was founded in 2011 to educate the most vulnerable students of our communities and is committed to eliminating the achievement gap for all students.

Through studying some of the best schools in America, Navigator has established our own unique style of education. We hope our educational model will not only make a difference in the lives of Navigator students but also in the lives of students throughout California.  We hope our shared commitment to improving children's futures will become common ground between Navigator Schools, parents, and school districts across the nation. Educators can use and adapt our strategies in any classroom setting. Schedule a visit and join in a partnership with Navigator.
