Working exclusively with charter schools, we measure our success by the number of students we serve. Our team works with all sizes – and types – of charter schools to budget and plan for current needs and future growth – whether your school requires operational capital, growth funding, or facilities expansion. We partner with our clients so they can focus on what’s most important – educating students.
Long-Term Lease Financing
Our lease product allows schools to access funding through all stages of growth – from startup to expansion through maturity. Our transparent lease terms mean that there are no artificial incentives to seek refinancing – another great benefit. As a long-term partner, our team carefully evaluates each school’s unique operation to help them determine the revenue that can be committed to supporting facilities.
