This is the third Profiles report to examine nonprofit education management organizations (EMOs). This report is modeled after the 12 annual reports that cover for-profit EMOs. While the number of schools operated by for-profit EMOs grew rapidly in the 1990s and is now leveling off, the data contained in this report illustrate how the number of schools operated by nonprofit EMOs has been growing more steadily and steeply over time. Since the previous year alone, the number of nonprofit EMOs has increased by 2.2%, the number of schools operated by nonprofit EMOs increased by 10.0%, and the number of students enrolled in these schools increased by 22.2%.
