Who is Charter Schools USA?

Founded in 1997, Charter Schools USA (CSUAS) is one of the oldest, largest and fastest-growing education management companies in the United States. Recently, AdvancEd awarded CSUSA the first Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) district accreditation for an education management company. We successfully manage high performing private and municipal schools for pre-Kindergarten through grade 12. CSUSA assist corporations, government entities, developers and nonprofit agencies with all phases of school design, planning, development, financing, construction, operations and curricula. We've also been instrumental in pushing forward legislative processes that have furthered education reform to help all students gain a high quality education.

While we are proud of our awards, we believe our greatest accomplishments are gaining a 95% plus satisfaction rate from parents and achieving a district "A" academic average for the last 6 years from the Department of Education. At Charter Schools USA, we always put students first in every decision we make. That philosophy, along with a certified and dedicated staff has placed Charter Schools USA as a leader in education management nationally.
