Our Vision

We envision a future where a diverse and accessible private school sector becomes the engine for excellence and innovation in American education.

With a long-term goal of supporting the growth of private school networks across the nation, The Drexel Fund is concentrating near-term investments in five states that provide the most advantageous environment for new, high-quality, financially sustainable private schools—Florida, Indiana, Louisiana, Ohio, Wisconsin—and six opportunity states that show promise for school growth, depending on the school model—Alabama, Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, North Carolina and Oklahoma.

For Schools & Founders
Schools and networks The Drexel Fund supports will be:
  • Successful academic performance on state or nationally-normed assessments

  • Use of data to strengthen instructional practices

  • Experienced leadership team with high expectations

  • Strong character and/or faith development

  • Strong organizational financial practices

  • No more than 15% of budget at scale to be met by philanthropy

  • Aspire to grow into a network of schools

  • Equipped to scale and replicate

  • Have plans to overcome the obstacles to high-quality growth
