CharterStart is GCSA’s comprehensive and targeted training program that offers technical and hands-on assistance to those interested in starting high quality charter schools in Georgia.

Each CharterStart cohort consists of up to eight (8) founding groups.
The following pre-requisite steps are required to participate in CharterStart:
- Establish a high-capacity founding group of 7-11 people

- Develop a mission, vision and executive summary that clearly articulates your mission and the need for the school you are proposing
