Project Overview

Foreign investors seeking a direct route to the United States of America via the EB-5 immigrant investor program are offered a unique opportunity to invest as little as US$500,000* in a first-rate American Public Charter School project. The investment will take the form of a secured loan made to School Development HC LLC. Once built, the project will be managed and operated by Pinecrest Academy, Inc., which is a not-for-profit corporation and owned by Academica.


In the form of a subsidy per student, the operator will receive a source of steady income from local and state governments to cover for all the school operating costs. As they do for all public schools across the state, the government will remain responsible of overseeing the financial and academic performance of the school.

Description and Location of the School

The new public charter school named Pinecrest Lake Nona is located at 8531 Narcoossee Road in Orlando, Florida 32822. It can accommodate up to 1400 students from grade 6 - 12. The school will be delivered in August 2021.
