                                          EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
(NOTE: The Executive Summary is the section of the business plan in which you give an overview of the School, its
present status and future direction, and highlight the key points and the purpose of your business plan. This section
should be written after the rest of the business plan, and should not exceed 3 pages in length - that’s why it’s called a
“summary”.)

[Name of School] (the "School") is a charter school which offers Grade _______ through Grade _________
education. [Briefly outline the School's philosophy and framework.]

The School's mission is to ______________________ [briefly set out the School's mission - this will be expanded
upon in the main body of the business plan]. Our instructors are exceptional and highly trained individuals
who understand and embrace our mission, and who share our vision.

[Outline the School's history.]

Our current enrollment is _________. In order for us to increase enrollment and expand our facilities and
educational offerings, the School requires funding of approximately $_________________ to [set out the
uses to which the funds will be put, e.g. renovate our existing facilities, build new ____________, hire
additional instructors, etc.]

This business plan presents our ___-year vision for the School and was developed through the combined
input of teachers, administrators and parents. The plan identifies programs and facilities that we believe
are desperately needed, but which we cannot undertake with our current school budget. Our fundraising
efforts will concentrate on obtaining, developing and implementing these items over the next ____ years.

                                 I.       HISTORY & BACKGROUND
1.1      Background

Charter schools offer parents more choices and more flexibility in the type of education available for their
children, and allows them to be more involved in the way that education is provided. Parents and
students alike expect a charter school to provide innovative and relevant approaches to education,
translating into higher levels of scholastic endeavor and overall achievement.

[Outline the history of charter schools in your area, legislation governing charter schools, number of charters
granted, etc]




1.2      History of the School

[Outline the history of the school, development of its vision, establishment of curriculum and programs, etc.]




1.3      Community Collaboration

Since its inception, the School has worked hard to build and maintain solid partnerships within the
community, with parents, teachers, administration, local business, and local government. The School’s
program involves parents at all levels as members of the Charter Council, Parent Council, and as
volunteers on committees and in the classrooms. Parent volunteers have saved us thousands of dollars,
and together with the administrator, faculty members and school district representatives, they are an
integral part of determining the direction of the School.
