It takes a village to launch a charter school.

SchoolWorks has provided charter application development support for school founders nationwide, and serves as an application reviewer in multiple states. To date, our experts have helped launch more than 100 schools.

Charter School Application Development Support

Through our charter school application development services, SchoolWorks helps your charter school vision become a reality, from start to finish. We provide complete guidance through the entire process, and offer feedback where you most need it. Our consultants can work with your founding group to complete the application writing process. Or, if it better suits your needs, we offer success-oriented feedback on your application using your authorizer’s rubric, annotating your draft to point out areas that need clarification.

Charter Application Bootcamp Online Course

The SchoolWorks team developed a comprehensive online course to help school founders successfully navigate the complex and lengthy process of developing a high-quality charter school application. Our experts move through each section of the application, providing context, insights, and key considerations to help founding teams develop a strong, consistent, and thorough narrative response.
