Hey, Yeshivas and Muslim religious schools. Stop struggling to raise money. Rename yourself and get a charter from the State University of New York Charter Committee.

They are moving into the vacuum created by the closure of Catholic schools.Here is the mission statement of Seton Partners: Here is the charter chain they run. They plan to grow.
