Revere Community School “Bringing the community together to create a vibrant Revere

Revere Community School (RCS) understands that learning is not confined to the school-day classroom nor to school-age students.  RCS unites life-long learners with community and partner resources to empower its adult learners and encourage workforce development; financial literacy; health and wellness; community awareness; and civic participation.  RCS offers learning opportunities from informational seminars to credit-bearing college courses for Revere and neighboring residents of all ages to contribute to a diverse, interdependent, and changing world.

OUR VISION: RCS, along with community partners, strives to meet the needs of the resident of Revere and neighboring communities by connecting them to services and resources.

To build connections between members of Revere’s long-standing community and recent residents, between the available resources and the population at large and creating opportunities for residents and community leaders to shape the community support system

Revere Community Schools’ (RCS) focus is to identify and address needs in the community that align with the five of the essential services for economic stability and economic growth for residents:

  1. Financial Literacy
  2. Physical and mental health and wellness
  3. Social network and access to resources
  4. Career and workforce development
  5. Educational attainment

RCS offer resources at a central hub, where the school, the City, and partners from across the community come together to ensure residents seeking support in the city, or with regional partners, will be directed towards as a source of additional information, training, and networking.  This hub will also direct its adult learners out to those systems of support and services in the city
