Charter Schools have been an important part of the public school landscape for a long time, serving the needs of countless beloved communities across the country.
Let’s celebrate the reasons why we love Charter Schools and do our utmost to help Charter Schools remain flourishing, thriving schools – in service to your students, families, and communities – for many years to come:
You are Awesome!
Charter Schools are the innovation engines of education. Let’s look at a few of the ways you are already amazing, and let’s celebrate you:
Your school is probably the creation of former teachers or academic leaders who want to pursue public education in a specific way. You may focus on STEM, the arts, multilingualism, or college prep. We’ve worked with many charter schools like you. Check out three examples like Catalyst Charter Academy in Pittsburgh, PA, Aurum Prep in West Oakland, CA and Dual Language Immersion North County in Vista, CA.
Better Assessment Performance
In addition to smaller class sizes, a study by the Manhattan Institute discovered that charter schools average an additional 59 learning days of math and 44 days of reading in comparison with traditional public schools. This means that students in your charter school generally perform better on tests, but more importantly, charter schools have higher graduation rates for Black and Latino students. Our friends at Vanguard Collegiate of Indianapolis, SET High in San Diego, CA, and The Foundation for Hispanic Education in San Jose, CA are among many of our esteemed charter clients, ensuring smaller classes, access to tutoring, and more in-class time for learning.
Higher College Attendance
Your students have higher graduation rates, especially Black and Latino students. Your students also have high college persistence, meaning they return to college for multiple semesters. College persistence matters – as our clients Academia Avance in Highland Park, CA, Gateway College & Career Academy in Riverside, CA, and Hope for Hyndman Charter School (HHCS) in Hyndman, PA can attest.
Your school has more community involvement. This means your attendance is more steady, teen pregnancy rates are lower, suspension rates are lower, and incarceration rates are also lower. Three cheers for community – and these three examples of community-based leadership and curriculum: Almond Acres Charter Academy in Paso Robles, CA, Hasañ Preparatory & Leadership Academy in Tucson, AZ, and Green Inspiration Academy in Warrensville Heights, OH.
Charter schools are more available to- and flexible around- the challenges facing individual students, families, and communities. Our friends at Edge High School in Tucson, AZ, Buckeye Community Schools serving multiple locations in Ohio, and Eastlake High School in Colorado Springs, CO know that high school diplomas change lives – and so does the flexibility to earn them. Year-round enrollment, morning or afternoon classes, and lots of 1:1 attention for all at these charter high schools serving grades 9-12.
Now that we have celebrated how fantastic you are and what you bring to public education, let’s talk about how we might help you get where you want to go – with the money, know-how, and resources to help you and your students flourish.
