To successfully launch a school, you need quality training, mentoring, and a strong team behind you. Anyone who has started this journey knows that it is challenging to find the time and money to attend live workshops and training; especially when faced with busy schedules, shrinking budgets, rising travel costs, and tough economic times. CSMC is helping to break down the barriers between excellent educators and their dream of opening a high-quality charter school.
That’s why for the past 20 years, CSMC has partnered with teachers, school & community leaders, and others to start schools. Our School Development team has supported the launch of dozens of schools.
