Brilla Network – Brilla Public Charter Schools

About the Brilla Schools Network

In July 2017, Seton Education Partners officially became the management organization for the Brilla Schools Network. The Brilla Schools Network, now three schools strong, includes Brilla’s flagship elementary school, serving grades K-4; Brilla’s first middle school, which will serve grades 5-8, and a second elementary school, Brilla Veritas. The Brilla Schools Network team ensures mission integration and alignment among all Brilla schools, and provides services related to instruction, data, facilities, operations, talent recruitment, human resources and employment, budgeting and financial reporting, and fundraising. By performing these functions, Seton empowers school leaders to focus primarily on setting a powerful vision for student academic achievement and character development, motivating others to follow that vision, and strategically implementing the school’s mission.

About Seton Education Partners

Brilla College Prep was conceived, incubated and opened by Seton Education Partners, a 501(c)3 public charity that was founded in 2009 by KIPP Foundation pioneer Scott W. Hamilton and Teach For America alumna Stephanie Saroki de Garcia. Seton Education Partners seeks to expand academically-excellent and character-building educational options for underserved children, especially in neighborhoods where traditional Catholic schools are being closed. With a focus on results, Seton is committed to ensuring that children develop the knowledge, skills, and character traits necessary to earn a college degree and pursue lives of value and integrity.
