The Coalition of Leaders for Advanced Student Success (CLASS) is working to ensure the nation's best and brightest students, regardless of income, have the skills and knowledge to succeed in school and the workforce.
Who CLASS Coalition is:
Established in 2015, the CLASS Coalition is a national association of principals and leaders from high-performing, admissions-based high schools. The coalition is focused on helping students overcome challenges and gain the skills necessary to succeed after graduation.
The Conrad Challenge is an annual, multi-phase innovation and entrepreneurial competition that encourages young adults to leave their mark on the world. Each year, teams of 2-5 students, ages 13-18, from around the globe create products and/or services that address some of the most pressing global challenges.
Guided by teachers and industry experts, the competition becomes a master class in collaboration, creativity, critical thinking and communication. The result: students develop skills needed to thrive in the 21st century workforce and bring to life commercially-viable innovations that have the potential to change life for the better on the individual, national and global levels.
