Rich Learning Environments, Thriving Students
Deeply aware that education lays the foundation for opportunity, New Jersey Community Capital has been at the forefront of financing New Jersey charter schools and the innovative academic opportunities they provide for the state’s young population. Unity Charter School, a K-8 school in Morris Township, exemplifies the importance of a healthy learning environment for children, and of the power of our educational investments.
Unity’s consistently high academic performance alone conveys its value, but the school offers far more than a quality education: it incorporates environmentalism into every aspect of its operation, from its entirely eco-conscious curriculum to its organic lunches to its composting garden. Unity even uses filtered water fountains that tell students how many plastic bottles they are saving with each refill of their reusable bottles. Through reflection and discussion about positive decision-making and mutual respect, Unity students also learn how their everyday choices impact both the environment and the people around them.
