Empowering Charter Schools
We are the nation's leading provider of growth capital and facilities financing to charter schools. Over the last 10 years, we've put more than $1.5 billion to work for 600+ charter schools educating more than 690,000 students across the country.We are invested in you. Find out how we can help.
What We Do
Charter schools need access to capital during all stages of growth. Having flexible, reliable access to capital gives charter leaders peace of mind for operational expenses. Adding teachers? Purchasing textbooks? Upgrading classroom technology? Worried about depleting reserves? Connect with our team and we'll help you determine the capital you need.
Access to adequate charter school facilities continues to be one of the top challenges charter leaders face today. There are more than 1 million students currently on charter school waitlists around the country. And, there continues to be a lack of accessible financing options for charter facilities needs. In order to reach and teach more students and reduce these waitlists, charter schools require state of the art facilities that allow them to continue to build quality educational programs for student success.
Charter School Resources
Charter schools often don’t have the staff to take on the operational challenges charters face today. Our team provides guidance and shares knowledge and expertise in a variety of areas to aid charter leaders in their day-to-day operations including strategy, planning, finance, facilities, student enrollment, marketing, and other operational needs. We also have many resources accessible on this site from recorded webinars to presentations highlighting best practices.

Stories of Inspiration
In celebration of our 10th year supporting charter schools across the country, we are launching Stories of Inspiration to give recognition to the impact teachers make on our lives. In honor of Richard Dewey, the teacher who impacted Charter School Capital's President and CEO, Stuart Ellis, we will make donations to the top 10 most inspiring stories. Tell us your story! We want to hear from you – tell us about the teacher who changed your life and inspired you to be who you are today.
