Start small. Find a garage and create a website. Make it a study group and fight team. People will slowly filter in, by then you should have the experience and knowledge to run a small school.
Thats how I did it.
Now, I run a school part-time. Its alot of work, but worth it.

AS it has been said, running aschool is a big taking, i had a school some years back with a friend, we where both just about right out of high school and didn't dick about running a place. So, it tanked on us pretty quicklly.
As a rule of thumb, you might want to have enough capital to be able to keep the place open for about a 16-18 months without a single person walking in the door.
