Dear parents, students, and community members,

My name is Rod Jurado, and I am honored and humbled to serve as the Chair of the Florida Charter Educational Foundation, Inc. and Bay Area Charter Foundation, LLC. I follow a strong legacy of leaders who have worked together with the parents, board, communities, and businesses to make our schools the best places to learn, achieve, and grow. Thank you for visiting this page and taking the time to learn more about our great schools.

Our board is diversely comprised of some of the most passionate leaders in various industries from Education to Business. These community leaders graciously volunteer their time to ensure a brighter future for our children. I would like to personally thank each member for their continued dedication to our mission.

Through our partnership with Charter Schools USA (CSUSA) our schools implement the CSUSA Guaranteed and Viable Curriculum while providing our students the opportunity to participate in extracurricular activities such as sports, special interest clubs and a variety of other organizations which provide holistic enrichment. Our students and staff continue to work hard every day to become the best and brightest and to realize our shared vision of providing parents and students in Florida with top-notch education options.

As we grow and succeed individually, we build our communities together for the betterment of our children. We encourage you to contact our schools to learn more about what they have to offer your children or visit our school websites for more information.
