Expansion and Growth

Serving More Students in More Communities

College is the #1 economic mobility and anti-poverty strategy that America possesses. When a student from the bottom income quartile and a student from the top income quartile attend and graduate from the same selective university, the economic disparities that defined their childhood nearly vanish. That’s why IDEA makes a promise to every child and every family that attends — you will go to college.

And this is why IDEA Public Schools continues to grow today. We are committed to bringing this opportunity to as many communities as we can while still maintaining high-quality results.

IDEA’S 2023 Growth Plan

In the 2021-22 school year, we will serve 75,000 students. IDEA will operate 194 schools by 2023*.
