"Simply put, Jill and Andrea were worth every penny that we spent on their services. The process of charter renewal is nerve-wracking given the stakes for our teachers, families and students. There is no one that I trusted more to guide us through the thicket of expectations than these two skilled and experienced professionals."
“As the political sands continue to shift both in Albany and Manhattan, it is difficult to remain current with issues that impact on charter schools. As a community based charter school, the Bronx Charter School for Better Learning (BBL) has found that Empire Charter Consultants serves as a very effective guide to navigating emerging political issues. Our association with Empire Charter Consultants has aided BBL to better manage both political and budgetary issues. Their insights and experience are valued assets which have regularly aided BBL.”

I would highly recommend that you do not put your oar in the water without the support of the Empire Charter Consultants."

Jill and her team are incredibly responsive and have helped us navigate multiple challenging situations. They bring with them a breadth of knowledge in the charter sector, a long list of influential contacts, and a practical understanding of on-the-ground needs of charter operators. We will definitely continue our membership with them in the coming year."
