About the Brilla Schools Network

In July 2017, Seton Education Partners officially became the management organization for the Brilla Public Charter Schools. The Brilla Schools Network Team develops strategy and systems of support and accountability for Brilla Schools. As the Network, Seton 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

The Brilla Schools Network 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 expands opportunities for parents in underserved communities to choose an academically excellent, character rich, and—for those who seek it—vibrantly Catholic education for their children. 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.
