For over 15 years, No Excuses University has been showing schools how to build Six Exceptional Systems as a means to generating extraordinary results for students at every level. In the past, thousands of schools have attended our institutes and began developing these systems at the conclusion of our events. After months, and sometimes years of work, hundreds have gone on to apply online to become official schools and continue to benefit from the resources shared by others within our network from across the country. The NEU Boot Camp offers a unique experience however for schools who have yet to develop their systems, but wish to join our network of schools. Over the next two days, teams of six to ten staff members, led by the school principal, will begin Day One with a willingness to work hard to develop their systems under the umbrella of college and career readiness for all, and leave official NEU Schools at the end of the Day Two.

Please Note: Official NEU Status will only be granted to schools who:
Attend the entire two days of the Boot Camp. Leaving early at the end of day two is not an option. Have a team of between 6 and 10 staff members that is lead by the school principal.

  • Build a Culture of Universal Achievement as the foundation for the way your team collaborates, aligns standards, assesses, manages data, and intervenes with students to address their academic and social/emotional needs.
  • Create an endorsement containing their roadmap for implementing the Six Exceptional Systems that make schools successful.
  • Be coached by a number of NEU professionals from our most successful schools.
  • Learn from and listen to our authors who will offer strategies and ideas to put in place at your schools immediately.
  • Learn how to use the exclusive NEU Connect online platform to benefit from thousands of resources currently being used by those within our network.
  • Leave an official No Excuses University School!
