It’s hard to overestimate the importance of education—and the obstacles schools face today in fulfilling their missions.

Our Experience

We understand the unique accounting and operational issues faced by independent and charter schools, including:

  • Tuition management
  • Seasonal cash flow
  • Financial aid
  • Endowment management
  • Organizational structure
  • Permanently restricted contributions
  • Capital campaigns
  • Facilities management

Our Services

Whether providing assurance, tax or consulting services, we go beyond the deliverables and help schools set the foundations for bright futures. We work with school leaders and board members to provide guidance, training, and benchmarking reporting on areas critical to your long-term success.

Our Commitment

As demonstration of our commitment to serving schools, Aronson is an approved auditor of the DC Public Charter School Board (DC PCSB).
