As New Orleans strives to eliminate all academically unacceptable schools in the city over the next 3–5 years, NSNO seeks true collaboration between schools, parents, students and community members to establish successful transitions and long-term success. NSNO has mobilized nearly $100 million for public education in New Orleans. Our investments range from incubating new public charter schools to supporting scaling of human capital support providers.
Charter School Investments

Human Capital Investments
Building sustainable citywide demand. We invest or secure capital for school support providers and collaborate to build citywide awareness and demand to sustain valuable initiatives.
NSNO Investment Support
Providing direct support to our investments. We work with schools and human capital providers to identify citywide gaps affecting academic achievement and collaboratively design programs to address those needs.
