Momentous Institute

 

Momentous Institute is a private school funded by the Salesmanship Club where 80 percent of students come from low-income families. Momentous is a lab school for examining what works in serving low-income student populations. They host a conference on social and emotional learning and have led training for Teach for America teachers in the Dallas-Fort Worth corps. Additionally, they have an in-house researcher who examines academic, social, and emotional learning outcomes, as well as an external evaluator that follows its students for seven years after they leave and collects data on high school graduation and post-secondary enrollments. Their latest numbers indicate that 95 percent of former Momentous students graduate on time and of those students, 92 percent enroll in post-secondary education.
