About Project L.I.F.T.

Who We Are

We are Project Leadership & Investment For Transformation (L.I.F.T.) a public/private partnership organized as a non-profit organization, operating as one of five learning communities in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School System. Our work directly impacts nine schools:

Allenbrook Elementary

Ashley Park PreK-8 School

Bruns Academy

Druid Hills Academy

Ranson IB Middle School

Statesville Road Elementary

Thomasboro Academy

Walter G. Byers School

West Charlotte High School
We want to transform the way students who traditionally perform poorly in school are educated by ensuring these students are equipped and ready to enter the 21st century and beyond.

We will provide them with a strong educational foundation that includes reading and math and culture using a unique approach to teaching and learning that includes bold, innovative strategies.
