PSP’s Great Schools Fund aims to give 50,000 more students access to high-quality schools by:

  • Expanding high-performing schools: Growth grants to expand or replicate existing successful schools so they can serve more students
  • Transforming struggling schools: Turnaround grants to school operators with a strong track-record of successful turnaround or experience successfully operating an urban school
  • Opening new schools: Startup funding to launch a school with a fully developed plan and proven leaders
  • Incubating new school ideas: Incubation funds to talented teams, individuals and organizations with new school ideas so they can develop startup plans

To date, we have invested more than $58 million in high-quality schools to help give nearly 25,000 more students access to a great education each year. The Fund invests in high-performing K-12 schools of all types — district, charter, and private — with the capacity to deliver outstanding educational outcomes for children in the city.
