Capstone Education Group

Capstone Education Group (CEG) is a charter management organization created to serve children living in local communities in Memphis. CEG, formed by Memphians to serve Memphians, currently runs two full elementary schools - Cornerstone Prep - Lester Campus and Cornerstone Prep – Denver Campus (launched August 2015) – and one middle school, launched in August 2014, called Lester Prep. CEG runs schools as part of the Achievement School District (ASD), which is an organization formed through the Race To the Top Funds to move the bottom 5% of schools in Tennessee to the top 25% in the state. CEG is honored to be a part of this important work.
