Charter Schools

Charter Schools are new, innovative public schools that have been freed from some of the rules, regulations, and statutes that apply to other public schools. They are designed to deliver programs tailored to educational excellence and the needs of the communities they serve. Policymakers, parents, and educators are looking at chartering as a way to increase educational choice and innovation within the public school system. 

At PNC we combine a wider range of financial resources with a deeper understanding of your organization, to help you achieve your goals.

PNC Understands Charter Schools

Owning a facility is crucial to a charter school achieving its mission of offering a quality education, and provides stability as well as growth. As a leader in charter school financing, PNC understands the legal and financial variables that affect charter schools' ability to gain access to long-term financing rates through the tax-exempt capital markets. Through our vast network of institutional investors PNC has created an active market for the purchase of charter school tax-exempt bond issues.

PNC Offers Solutions for Charter Schools

Charter Schools often cannot raise enough grant funds to cover the costs of their facility projects. Through accessing the tax-exempt bond market, our Charter School clients have obtained a suitable source of financing for their building projects. Debt service payments can be comparable to lease payments, which allow schools to own their buildings, rather than just renting their facility.
