Our goal at ICON is to provide high quality support and professional consulting in order for charter schools to experience quality growth.
WHO WE ARE
ICON was formed by professional individuals who have the collective vision to make Charter Schools succeed.
Our company consists of former Charter School Auditors and Business Officers. As former charter operators and auditors, we know what it takes for charter schools to be successful. Equally important, however, we also know common pitfalls that make charters vulnerable. ICON was founded to help charter schools avoid these pitfalls, implement best practices, and create strategies for success and growth.
