The Pittsburgh Promise has a bold vision for our region:

A city at the core of a strong region whose neighborhoods are vibrant, inclusive, and attractive to young and senior people, as well as businesses small and large
A public school district at the center of the city that provides enviably excellent education to all of its children
A generation of young people at the heart of the district who are equipped to pursue higher education with vigor and who are dedicated to a lifetime of service

To achieve this vision, The Promise is committed to three primary goals:

Mitigate and reverse the population declines in the City of Pittsburgh and the enrollment declines in Pittsburgh Public Schools
Grow the high school completion rates, college readiness, and post high school success of all students in Pittsburgh Public Schools
Deploy a well-prepared and energized work force and an eager core of community volunteers
