SABIS® Charter Schools to Expand in the U.S.
Established in 1886, the SABIS® School Network is comprised of schools located in 15 countries on four continents and educates more than 63,000 students. The SABIS® School Network, which is divided into two regions, America/Europe and North Africa, the Middle East, and Asia, provides students around the world with access to top-quality education that prepares them to achieve success in college and beyond.
In the U.S., SABIS® member schools are predominantly public charter schools, which are publically-funded, tuition-free schools. Since 1995, SABIS® has built a reputation for excellence in its U.S. member charter schools, whose students have consistently earned solid results. In the 2013-14 academic year, there are 11 SABIS® member charter schools in the U.S. operating in 5 states from coast to coast.
Drawing on the strength of the results achieved by SABIS® member charter schools, the network is set to expand in the near future. Two charter schools located in New Jersey have been approved for opening in the 2014-15 academic year. The International Academy of Camden Charter School and the International Academy of Trenton Charter School will each open in 2014-15 to students in Kindergarten through Grade 3. Both schools will add a grade level each year of operation until they reach a full K-12 academic program.
Several other SABIS® member charter schools across the U.S. have been approved and are in the works for the 2015-16 academic year. These include 3 schools located in New Jersey, 3 in Michigan, and 1 in Massachusetts.
“The charter school movement continues to offer great opportunities for the expansion of proven educational models such as SABIS®,” said Jose Afonso, SABIS® Director - U.S. Business Development. “Our strong and consistent record of delivering superior performance in the most challenged communities across the country will continue to result in growth opportunities.”
