In the spring of 2013, Jerry Lager and Philip Muzzy met to discuss what education and innovation in a residential treatment facility should look like.  Over time, with the collaboration of administrators, teachers and paraprofessionals, these conversations resulted in the formation of ki education foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit.  Shortly thereafter, Christopher Allison and Paul Camden joined the team.  The hard work and dedication of the four founders was rewarded when the Commissioner of Education granted the education foundation a Generation 19 Charter School District in the fall of 2014.

Students that are educated at Ki Charter Academy reside at the San Marcos Treatment Center where they are provided intensive psychiatric residential evaluation and treatment. Our job at the Academy is to ensure that our students do not fall behind academically while they are receiving these services.
Ki charter was founded on the premise of change, hence our slogan, “every change has a story.” This means that we are not only educating students to learn, but helping change the way they think about education. 

We understand that not every student will be attending post-secondary education, so it is our responsibility
to prepare students to become productive members, and active citizens when they leave our school.  We accomplish this by providing our students with vocational programming, Career and Technology Education (CTE) courses; as well as a fully equipped Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) laboratory.
