Our Communities

We proudly serve any community where families lack choices in schooling. The majority of our public charter schools are located in underperforming urban school districts. We customize our program and services to meet the needs of each diverse community.

While the percentage of students who qualify for the Free & Reduced Lunch program can be as low as 60% in suburban areas, it is 100% for over three-quarters of our network.
