We will provide you with a complete School Start-up Roadmap from your initial idea to that successful opening first day of your new school.
What’s Your Idea?
Through a series of questions, we walk you through various options that will help you crystallize your ideas for a new school. Included will be links to some of the top schools in the nation representing different approaches to personalized learning.
Setting up your organization right is one of the first keys to success -- from deciding whether to be nonprofit or for profit and how to set up a governance structure that works. Included in this module are templates and tools to complete your 501c3 application and a Texas charter school application.
Find Your Space
One of the biggest challenges facing a school founder is finding your first school space. We will walk you through ideal school spaces, how to find your space, and how much you should be paying for it whether you lease or build.
Our system lets you complete start-up, capital and operating budgets to get you started on your journey.
At the heart of any great school is its staff -- and here you can explore various staffing models, job descriptions, how to recruit, screen and onboard your staff.
Budgets may be easy to create -- finding the students to meet that first operating budget can be a challenge so we will guide you with tips and strategies on successful marketing that will lead to meeting your first enrollment targets.
From setting schedules to optimizing communication between home and school -- we will support you in key strategies to operating efficiently.
