Organizational Overview

Big Picture Philadelphia (“BPP”) provides a project-based, student-centered, education to more than 600 students at two Philadelphia public high schools, and, in so doing, promotes student-centered learning in Philadelphia more broadly. BPP’s schools prioritize small class sizes, internships, career connections and post-secondary support. In all of the above, our mission is to provide alternative and transformative educational experiences for under-served high school youth. In doing so, we also intend to contribute to Philadelphia’s city-wide educational improvement efforts.

BPP’s first school, El Centro de Estudiantes, is an alternative school for students who are over-aged, under-credited, and ready to return to school to earn their diploma. BPP’s second school, Vaux Big Picture High School, is a neighborhood high school serving grades 9-12.
