New investments in district, charter and private schools

Yesterday, we announced that our Great Schools Fund is investing $2.6 million to create more than 850 new seats in innovative, high-quality district, charter and Catholic schools. Read more about it in today’s Inquirer and on WHYY.

The grants will fuel the startup of a new innovative district high school, the expansion of a high-performing charter school, and planning for a new Catholic high school to serve at-risk students. Learn more about the schools here.

We’re excited about this announcement because it shows that high achievement is possible in schools of all types – district, charter and private – and with different education models.

To date, we’ve invested $31.4 million to give more than 14,000 students access to great schools, and we’re on our way to raising and investing $100 million to triple the number of students in Philadelphia on the path to college and careers.
