Founded in 2005 in Salt Lake City, UT, HighMark School Development is a premier end-to-end facilities solutions provider for new and existing charter schools. The Founders created HighMark to assist parent boards and other grass-roots organizations in the development, organization, and construction of premier school facilities.
In June of 2008, Stephens Capital Partners invested in HighMark and is currently a majority owner.
The organization and development of a charter school can be a daunting and overwhelming task, especially without the expertise and experience of someone who has done it before. Our experienced school development team will save your board countless hours and resources and help avoid many of the common pitfalls and mistakes made in developing a new school facility.
HighMark’s business model is highly differentiated, operating in every aspect of the development cycle. HighMark separates itself from the notion of a pure development company by providing services that begin with locating land or existing real estate, to the actual launch of the charter school, and through to the financing/ownership stage.
