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
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.
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.
