Building Hope’s Impact

We invite you to take a look at what Building Hope and our charter school partners around the country have been able to achieve. 

Making the Impossible a reality

A young Idaho charter school found the building of its dreams, but procuring it seemed impossible. Then Building Hope stepped in.

Saving Money while expanding

This Texas network of STEM-focused schools needed new facilities in order to expand. Building Hope designed a financial solution that allowed the schools to build and save money.  

A complex solution

The renovation of DC International’s unique facility—at a former military installation—required the kind of wide-ranging expertise only Building Hope could provide.

FROM SEARS to Success

From virtual to physical: Building Hope understands that the right space for a charter school can be anywhere. Just ask our partners in Pocatello, Idaho.
