Start-Up Schools

START A SCHOOL.
START A REVOLUTION.

Starting a charter school is not for the faint of heart.  It requires passion, perseverance, and a relentless belief in the potential of every child. For those who take on the challenge comes the opportunity to change history.

For far too long, students and families in South Carolina have been shortchanged by the educational system.  Income and race remain major predictors of achievement.  We can and must change this by authorizing incredible charter schools, ensuring access and equity for all students.
