We have been a leader in funding alternative education initiatives, including charter networks such as the ones listed below and many individual charter schools in New York City and New York State.
- Classical Charter Schools
- Coney Island Prep Builders
- Democracy Prep
- Icahn Charter Schools
- Success Academy
Independently, Heckscher Foundation CEO Peter Sloane was a founding trustee of the first charter school in New York State, Sisulu Victory Academy.
Our partnership with a thought leader like Heckscher has pushed us to build out high-leverage, strategic data collection projects that provide our teachers and senior staff with a rich set of actionable information on student performance that they can then use to positively impact our students and their families for decades.Lester Long, Founder & Executive Director, South Bronx Classical Charter School
