Hardy Brown College Prep is authorized to operate through the year 2018, at which time it will be up for charter renewal.

These basic principles form the five pillars, responsible for the success of Fortune School.
Fortune School has high expectations for academic achievement and conduct that are clearly defined, measurable, and make no excuses based on the background of students. Students, parents, teachers, and staff create and reinforce a culture of achievement and support, through a range of formal and informal rewards and consequences for academic performance and behavior.
Choice and Commitment
Students, their parents, and the staff of Fortune School choose to participate in the program. No one is assigned or forced to attend. Everyone must make and uphold a commitment to the school and to each other to put in the time and effort required to achieve success.
