I PROMISE Program Students

1,400 Students & Growing

It all started back in 3rd grade. That’s when research says at-risk students can be accurately identified. Since 2011, we have welcomed a new class of third graders into the I PROMISE Program that now serves 1,100 Akron Public School students scattered across the district in grades six through eleven, and 343 students in grades three through five at the I PROMISE School. With the opening of IPS in 2018, all future I PROMISE students will enter the program through the doors of the I PROMISE School.

THE PROMISE

The I PROMISE Program is rooted in the promises LeBron and the students make to themselves, their families, and each other to be the best they can be in everything they do. They reaffirm this commitment every day as they recite their promises together. LeBron wears a visible symbol of his promise daily on his wrist, a sign of love and commitment to their common bond that drives them all to strive for more.
