Mater Brickell Preparatory Academy: The Educational Future of Brickell NOW

Mater Academy, Inc. is a nationally acclaimed not-for-profit network of high performing charter schools comprised of a family of educational leaders focused on college readiness and expanding the horizons of opportunity and success for all children.  Growing from three classrooms 18 years ago to a network of twenty-seven, tuition free open enrollment public charter schools and over fourteen thousand students, the mission of Mater Academy remains the same: teach effectively and produce college bound graduates.

Brickell has quickly become one of Miami’s most rapidly growing areas and a focal point for new businesses, young professionals and growing families.  The growth and transformation of the area has exacerbated the need for a high-quality educational option for the children of the urban core.  With options limited and thousands of student stations needed immediately, Mater Academy is uniquely able to deliver a high-quality, tuition-free, public charter school option to the Brickell community and surrounding areas.

Mater Academy is proposing a state-of-the-art K-12 academic campus on land it already owns in the heart of Brickell.  The Mater Brickell urban campus will bring together components of the existing neighborhood while incorporating elements of the newer, more contemporary developments of the Brickell area.

All children deserve an excellent public education and the Mater Academy network continues to be a driving force in accomplishing this goal. In order to make Mater Academy’s vision of an educational campus for Brickell a reality TODAY, we will need your help.  For more information, contact us at
