EFF is proud to announce the closing of a $25.6 million loan to Not Your Ordinary School (NYOS) in Austin, TX. This 30-year, fixed-rate loan will **finance the construction of a state-of-the-art facility **that will catalyze NYOS's growth and provide a high-quality education option for more Austin families. The loan will save the school approximately $9 million, providing additional resources to support students, teachers, and leaders. We are grateful for our exceptional funders, investors, and the entire NYOS community for making this high-impact partnership possible.
Founded in 1998, NYOS serves 1,063 students in grades PK-12 and will nearly double in size over the coming years. The school’s culture, commitment to families, and diverse-by-design model have contributed to a reputation as one of Texas’s best public charter schools. NYOS consistently outperforms the state and its sending district on Math, ELA and SAT/ACT tests and has earned distinction as one of the nation's best high schools from US News and World Report.
