Public Charter Schools

AN ALTERNATIVE CHOICE TO TRADITIONAL EDUCATION

A market-based approach to public education, public charter schools give parents an alternative to traditional education and give schools greater freedom to meet the needs of their students through customized curriculum, learning models and operating hours.

Significant demand continues to grow for public charter schools facilities, with a total student population of nearly 3 million students. This alternative choice in publicly funded education has had steady growth over the past 20 years, with a recent surge in enrollment of over 100 percent since the 2007-2008 school year.

This swell of demand for educational choice has brought a need for safe and attractive facilities that are important to the success of any school. EPR Properties has invested more than $700 million in public charter school facilities that educate more than 36,000 students nationwide, making us one of the nation’s largest institutional owners of public charter school properties.

Our financing allows educators and administrators to focus on curriculum and instruction, enrollment targets and the challenges of delivering an education to meet the needs of students and the desires of parents. As a result, our public charter school partners obtain sustainability, viability, and a competitive advantage, especially during the early growth phase.
