Planning New Schools

We walk alongside you in the early stage of school development.

School founders in the early planning stage need a thought partner to help them consider the challenges they may face and the questions to which they need answers. Through conversations that range from the practical to the philosophical, we focus on helping school founders move from interest in opening a school to tangible goals informed by expertise and analysis.

We work with school founders to ask the right questions and help find the right answers. Whether you have a fully developed idea or more questions than answers, we can help ensure your success. Here are a few of the areas where we can help:

  • Choosing a School Type and Model

  • Conducting a Landscape Analysis

  • Navigating State Laws and Requirements

  • Submitting a Charter Application
