Creating Schools for Urban Children
PCSD is a non-profit real estate development organization that finds, acquires, finances, and builds low cost facilities to high quality charter schools.
Focused on neighborhoods with chronically overcrowded and underperforming schools, our projects allow constituent charter schools to concentrate on classroom instruction rather than real estate development.
Over our eight year history, PCSD has created 44 schools on 32 campuses serving 17,381 students. In 2011, PCSD completed 1,351 seats for 3 schools on 3 campuses. Test scores, graduation rates, and subsequent 4-year college attendance rates have universally improved among the populations served at these new schools thanks to the efforts of the educators we build for.
