Victory Education Partners was founded by Steven Klinsky to provide services for a variety of schools including: New York’s first charter school (the Sisulu-Walker Charter School of Harlem) and Harvard’s Kennedy School. In this capacity, Klinsky is also able to act as an advisor for other schools and school districts.

On establishing Victory Education Partners, Steven Klinsky realized that getting an application accepted was all about having the right expertise combined with the school’s vision. Today, Victory Schools offers help to schools to facilitate the entire authorization and development process. This begins by consulting a planning team to ensure the school’s vision is represented accurately in their application. Victory Education Partners meets the team to figure out what is needed to start – and thereafter manage – a charter school.

Victory Schools helps the team compose their application, taking the dreams and ideas and putting them with its practical expertise to formulate a highly-concrete application. Next, the team is prepped for interviews with the charter authorization personnel. Victory Schools then offers a space for the school’s team (until their actual school is ready) equipped with phones, computers and all other necessities facilitating the school’s smooth transition.

Since Steven Klinsky realized that making the transition to a charter school can be quite challenging fiscally, Victory Education Partners provides a credit line to these newly-authorized schools. As it can take a while for the first public funding payment to be processed, financial backing is offered from Victory Education Partners.

Before the establishment of Victory Education Partners, Steven Klinsky held positions like chairman or director of various companies, and is today still an Advisory Board Member of both the Program on Education Policy and Governance at Harvard’s Kennedy School and Harvard Business School’s Social Enterprise Initiative.
