The Urban Dove Team Charter School (UD Team) is a completely unique and innovative alternative high school targeting under-credited 9th and 10th graders. UD Team is a 3-year program that combines a sports-based youth development component and a project-based, highly personalized academic approach to give each graduate a high school diploma, a foundation for higher education and the job skills needed to enter the world of work.

Some highlights of our program:

  • Students are members of small, single-gender teams that practice together, play together, go to class together, and receive support services together
  • Students spend significant portions of each day playing and participating in a sports, health and fitness curriculum
  • Teachers have ample time to plan, meet in teams, and participate in rigorous professional development
  • Teachers are supported, mentored and heard through a governance structure that values all constituents
  • Urban Dove, a non-profit with over 10 years in youth service, serves as an institutional partner to the school




  • UD Team teachers are results-driven educators with experience in, and commitment to, standards-based curriculum and the use of various data points to inform instructional decision-making.
  • UD Team teachers are collaborative and self-motivated, risk-taking and self-reflective, and sensitive to the academic and social-emotional needs of at-risk students.
  • UD Team teachers are committed to students’ high achievement in the classroom and are willing to embark on a venture that demands extra hard work, flexibility, and leadership.



  • Effectively differentiate instruction based on an array of student needs
  • Keep track of the individual progress of all students
  • Design and implement differentiated assessments that measure progress towards teacher-designed course competencies
  • Participate in collaborative curriculum development, grade-level teacher teams, and school-wide functions
