Our vision is that one day all families will have the ability to choose a high quality school, so that all students achieve their full potential. Our mission is to empower families to engage in a marketplace of schools. We connect families to schools and schools to families. We do this by providing families with tools and resources for selecting a school and helping them navigate the application process to get there. We believe that every child should have access to an excellent education, regardless of income. Founded in 2010 to support the escalating number of families on high performing charter school waitlists, we now serve over 25,000 families in Houston and San Antonio. We do not advocate for any one schooling option over the other. We want families to know that when it comes to selecting a school, you have a voice in the choice.

We provide families with tools and resources for selecting a school and help them navigate the application process to get there. Our work aligns with the SA2020 vision because we help to ensure that every child will have access to an excellent education, regardless of family income.
