Startup and Renewal Solutions



To successfully open and operate a new charter school, even the best educators with the strongest vision must be able to navigate a complex and rigorous process. Santilli & Thomson know this process from the inside out. We help our startup clients in every aspect—from securing initial planning grants, if necessary, through preparation of the charter application. We even help find appropriate facilities and secure necessary financing.


In the current environment, charter renewals have come under increasing scrutiny. We make sure that our clients’ renewal applications are comprehensive and completely accurate so that they are thoroughly prepared to present the strongest case for renewal. This ensures approval with the fewest possible conditions (or, as has been our experience, no conditions at all).
