Our Mission

Serving the Urban Assembly School for Law and Justice

The Urban Assembly School for Law and Justice is a public high school which serves a population of at-risk, low-income students from historically disadvantaged communities across Brooklyn and other boroughs—70% of them are living at or below the poverty line, and 75% of them are the first in their family to go to college. Its mission is to overcome the opportunity gap by providing its students with the rigorous academic, enrichment, and college-preparatory curriculum that will allow them to get into and succeed in college and beyond.

SLJ does not screen its students, meaning that it accepts incoming 9th graders irrespective of academic ability, and through its three pillars of education—intensive academic instruction, robust enrichment offerings woven into the curriculum, and individualized college preparatory support—gives them the tools to create a brighter future for themselves. Most students arrive in 9th grade with a 4th or 5th grade reading level, but by 11th grade more than 85% pass the English Regents with a 75 or better. Last year, SLJ’s graduation rate was 88% compared to a citywide average of 68%, and 87% of SLJ’s 2013 graduates remain in college 18 months after graduation. Through the lens of social justice and with a view toward reducing inequality, SLJ promotes individualized education that draws on each student’s potential, while at the same time emphasizing students’ collective power as citizens to call for positive change in the world.

The Adams Street Foundation is the in-residence, non-profit partner of the Urban Assembly School for Law and Justice. Thanks to generous gifts from corporate and foundation partners and individual donors, ASF finances and delivers the enrichment programming and college and career services that SLJ would not otherwise have the resources to provide.
