Founded in 1979, the Center for Supportive Schools (CSS, formerly Princeton Center for Leadership Training) is driven by the vision that one day, all students will thrive in schools that graduate them prepared for the rigors of college and lives filled with meaningful work, active citzenship, and personal fulfillment. Our work directly addresses disengagement from school, a root cause of students dropping out of school and other high-risk behaviors for students in urban, suburban, rural, economically disadvantaged, or more affluent communities.
