Charter School Testimonials

Charter School leaders and boards across Georgia rely on Charter CFO. You should, too.

It is my absolute pleasure to recommend Candy Yu and AABS LLC for your accounting service needs.

Candy served as the CFO of Graduation Achievement Charter High School during my two-year tenure on the Board of Directors. She was a valuable asset to the team and it was an absolute pleasure to work with her. She is friendly, eager to help, timely, and always answers questions in a clear. concise manner. She is incredibly hard working and always goes the extra mile to find a solution. Beyond that, she is impressive at presenting financial data and always plans ahead to meet deadlines.

Her knowledge and expertise of finance was a huge advantage to our group. She put this skillset to work to convey important details to executives, board members, auditors, and State Charter School Commission staff.

Along with her undeniable talent, Candy is an absolute joy to work with. She is a true team player, and always manages to foster positive discussions and bring the best out of other board members.

Without a doubt, I confidently recommend Candy to join your team. As a dedicated and knowledgeable employee and an all-around great person, I know that she will be a beneficial addition to your organization.

Please feel free to contact me should you like to discuss Candy’s qualifications and experience further. I’d be happy to expand on my recommendation.
The service from Avolon Accounting Firm has been excellent. They gave me the assurance of full compliance with governmental accounting guidelines and rules.

Brighten Academy Charter School (2014 Charter School of the Year)
Avolon Accounting has proven to be a very valuable resource for Leadership Preparatory Academy. Having been challenged with being an ‘in-between size,’ we were too small for in-house accounting, but too big not to have a full-time, full-service accounting resource, we found the right solution. Avolon Accounting crafted a custom proposal that met all of our needs, added another layer of fiscal fidelity and came in under budget. After looking at several proposals and options, we are satisfied that we made the right decision with Candy Yu and her team of professionals. I highly recommend her and her firm as THE professional choice in the charter school financial management arena!

Monica Henson, EdD
Former Superintendent and Chief Executive Officer
Provost Academy Georgia
Candy assumed the role of CFO at Provost Academy after we found ourselves in need of greater professional acumen in both the accounting and financial controls of the school. In a very short period of time, Candy reconciled a number of outstanding issues with tracking our accounts payables and receivables, implemented an online ledger system, and helped us stabilize our budgeting process. We have been very satisfied with her service and contribution, and we would gladly recommend her to anyone needing to organize their financial house.
