City Education Partners (CEP) is an emerging San Antonio area 501c3 nonprofit that provides coordinated grants to public school operators and teacher preparation pathways in order to develop aspirational partnerships that create quality schools and attract top talent. Currently, CEP is funding an SAISD/Trinity University partnership to create an open enrollment, PK-12 advanced school and teacher residency model in downtown San Antonio.

CEP joins public schools, educator preparation pathways and philanthropy to increase the numbers of passionate teachers and leaders who come to San Antonio, serve in more purposeful ways in inner city schools for longer periods of time in order to provide high quality learning environments for all children so that they can fully realize their potentials.
