Charter School Incubator

Our Schools 

The Charter School Incubator works with creative, committed community based planning teams to develop and support some of New York's most needed and innovative charter school models.  Here are some of the schools we helped incubate.

John W. Lavelle Preparatory Charter School

The first charter school in NY that targets students with social and emotional challenges and serves them in an integrated and inclusive college preparatory environment.

Dr. Richard Izquierdo Health and Sciences Charter School

Developed in collaboration with the nationally recognized Urban Health Plan community clinics, the Izquierdo Health and Sciences Charter School provides a College and career program that serves the largely Latino population in the South Bronx, preparing them for a career in Health care or the college of their choice.

Part of the network of Hyde Charter Schools, Hyde East New York has a deep and intensive commitment to involving parents in the life of the school and focuses on the family unit as the level to drive student achievement.

Heketi Charter School

Heketi, the Taino word for "unity" or "one", signifies the school's commitment to serving all students, and particularly English language learners, in an inclusive and rigorous academic environment.  The school grew from the community and founder's vision for a community based school that would embrace student home languages while leading to mastery of English.
