In memory of Steve Christopoulos

A Passionate Visionary,
Focused Leader,
Robust Intelligence
It is with deep sadness that the Board of Directors of Plato Academy Charter Schools announces the untimely passing away of our leader Mr. Steve Christopoulos on June 27, 2018. Be assured that his legacy and vision will continue with the successful years ahead of us.

The academic quality and high standards evidenced in the immensely successful Plato Academy Charter Schools will continue to be a testament and legacy to Mr. Christopoulos as a passionate visionary, a keenly focused leader, and a man with robust intelligence, who utilized them all to better our children’s development for generations to come.

Plato Academy Charter Schools now thrives with 9 campuses in the Tampa Bay area and we are looking forward to the new year to continue to provide world-class education to our students, as Mr. Christopoulos would want us to. The Board is very pleased to inform you that all administrators, teachers, staff, and other personnel are in place to welcome our students for the new year.

We honor, respect, and love Mr. Steve Christopoulos. Our world is a better place because of him. Mr. Christopoulos is survived by his mother Georgia, his brothers Euthymios (Tim) and Panagiotis (Peter), his daughters Georgia, Opi, and Sammy, his niece Georgia, and his nephews Alex and Andrew – all whom he loved very much.

Services will be announced on our website at


✞ May his memory be eternal.


On behalf of the Board of Directors and myself, I remain yours
