Leadership Team

Margaret Fortune, President/CEO

Margaret Fortune is changing what’s possible when you create excellent educational options for Black children. As the President/CEO of seven K-12 public charter schools in Sacramento and San Bernardino counties with a combined enrollment of more than 1,800 students, Fortune’s work is pointed towards one North star—to close the African American achievement gap. Fortune has founded some of the top majority African American public schools in the state of California. Fortune founded an early college high school in partnership with Cosumnes River College and Cal Poly San Luis Obispo focused on science, technology, engineering, art and math. Students are able to earn a high school diploma and associate’s degree upon graduation.
