Demand for high performing schools

Civic Builders is building schools to serve an ever growing need. In NYC alone, over 50,000 students are on a waiting list and 1 in 10 students citywide will attend a charter school in the 2016-17 school year. It is clear that charter schools are preparing their students for success in college and a 21st century career.

SPACE AS A BARRIER

Access to facilities is one of the main barriers that impedes the growth of charter schools. Unfortunately, schools are forced to use their instructional funds to pay for space, leaving less funds for instruction. Civic Builders is changing things. We have developed innovative and affordable ways to provide substantially more academic, community and play space.

creating thriving communities

Our schools are a catalyst for positive change, both for students lives and communities as a whole. The communities where we build our schools are often underinvested in. Civic Builders is committed to prioritizing these neighborhoods, ensuring access to internet, health services, and jobs.
