Who is Charter School Associates?
Charter School Associates, Inc. (CSA) develops and operates successful K-12 charter schools in multiple counties across Florida including Miami-Dade, Broward, Hillsborough, Pinellas, Brevard and Glades. CSA has, since 2003, developed dozens of schools ranging in size from as few as 35 students for Goodwill Industries of SW Florida to 1,150 students for the Charter School at Waterstone. CSA schools are performance-based centers of learning and teaching characterized by a challenging curriculum, highly qualified teachers and rigorous accountability to parents, students, state and district authorities. CSA provides full oversight and management solutions for new charter school projects including application development, site development, curriculum development, staff development, assessment and data analysis, payroll, personnel & employee benefits management and financial services.
Charter School Associates, Inc. is one of the few education management organizations nationally to be awarded the status of System Accredited through the Southern Association of Colleges & Schools/Council on Accreditation and School Improvement/AdvancEd (SACS/CASI/AdvancED). The benefit of CSA’s System Accreditation is the immediate accreditation of those schools operating under the company’s management umbrella. SACS accreditation enables each CSA member charter school to receive capital outlay funds from the State of Florida and the accredited status communicates to the public that the systems and policies of the school are rigorously and periodically reviewed for quality performance.
