In 2007, as a response to the growing need for appropriate insurance for charter and private schools nationally, Gallagher formed a risk management and insurance program for charter/private schools. The program was created as a direct response to these schools needing customized insurance options that provide the right coverage at the right price. It is the first insurance and safety program designed for schools by school leaders and school insurance experts. The Scholastic First Insurance Program insures over 1,000 school clients- saving schools an average of 10–25% off their original premiums while offering broader coverage with higher limits. Our program accepts a wide range of schools, including:
  • New charter/private schools
  • Established charter/private schools
  • Charters/Private schools operating multiple school sites
  • Religious or secular charters and schools
  • For-profit or non-profit charters/private schools
  • Schools of all sizes

Unlike regular insurance programs, we recognize that no one school is alike. We understand that proper insurance is important to both the schools and the students they serve; therefore, we made sure that we are backed by top-rated, reputable, and stable insurance companies with an A.M. Best Rating of A and above. In addition to the customization, the program uses an aggregate that places schools together in one program to create a large premium base that stabilizes rates in hard economic times.
