Gulen Charter Schools in the United States



Page created June 2010; last updated April 17, 2017

by C.A.S.I.L.I.P.S. - Citizens Against Special Interest Lobbying in Public Schools  CASILIPS on TwitterSlideshare
Note that this website has companion websites: Gulen Charter Schools  and  Gulen in the International Press  and  CASILPS (on Weebly)



Lists of schools currently pending or in the pipeline, and of schools that were planned but never materialized, are given on our companion site with more detailed information on Gulen charter schools (this site had to be relocated in 2017 because of this).  For schools closed or removed from Gulenist control, see further down this page.

Note that some schools have 2 or 3 different campuses at different locations (divided into elementary/middle/high school), yet are still considered a single school by their state.  The count here is generally based on what each state legally considers a "school" (i.e., an entity with its own school number and its own report card).

Total number of schools currently in operation:  156

Number of states with schools in current operation:   26 + District of Columbia
Number of schools closed / removed from Gulenist control / converted to private*:  14
             *some of these schools may have later been resurrected under a new charter

Schools currently in operation  (All are publicly funded.)
