About BASIS

BASIS charter schools (managed by BASIS.ed) have been raising the level of American education to the highest international standards since 1998. BASIS charter schools have an academically accelerated, internationally benchmarked liberal arts curriculum at 24 open enrollment, tuition-free public charter schools across the United States and are listed among the nation’s best by any measure – state and national rankings, success on Advanced Placement exams, success on PISA/OECD testing, and college admissions, among many factors. The BASIS formula is simple: we continually improve our exceptional curriculum; we hire bright, passionate teachers who are experts in their subjects and often have real-world experience; and we teach students to find what inspires them, and to ask and answer questions without hesitations or limits.
