New School Institute

It’s like school…for new schools.

Online Courses to Get Your School Started

The New School Institute is a series of Florida-specific trainings provided for free to school leaders who are working to open a new charter school opening in the state of Florida. Governing Board members and newly hired administrators will particularly benefit from these trainings. The institute meets every two months.

Designed specifically for Florida schools, our comprehensive online courses guide educators through the charter application process in Florida and set you on a path towards a successful opening once a school has an approved charter.

In addition to the online asynchronous course we will host monthly live meetings to discuss the issues participants are facing each month.  These will occur on the first Tuesday of each month using Zoom.  The link to join these sessions is:
