Our History

Choose to Succeed has been funded by both local and national philanthropy.

Our grants are used to:

  • Scale high-performing educational options in San Antonio
  • Promote informed parent choice
  • Create an environment that fosters education innovation and entrepreneurship


Our Schools

The Choose to Succeed portfolio currently includes five charter school operators:

  • BASIS Schools
  • Carpe Diem Schools
  • Great Hearts Academies
  • IDEA Public Schools
  • KIPP San Antonio

These schools are currently (2017-18 school year) serving 17,890 students with an additional 14,966 students on waitlists.

Our Future

A high-quality education is imperative for the futures of San Antonio’s K-12 students, as well as the city’s economic future. The reality is that San Antonio has high-skilled job openings that are not being filled because of a lack of qualified candidates.
