About National School Choice Week

Held every January, National School Choice Week (NSCW) shines a spotlight on effective education options for children.

During NSCW, schools, homeschool groups, organizations and individuals plan tens of thousands of independent events.

These celebratory events raise public awareness of the different K-12 education options available to children and families, while spotlighting the benefits of school choice.

NSCW recognizes all K-12 options, including traditional public schools, public charter schools, public magnet schools, private schools, online academies, and homeschooling.

Started in 2011, NSCW is now the world’s largest annual celebration of opportunity in education. Over the past seven years, there have been more than 58,000 NSCW events planned across the country and around the world.

NSCW is a nonpartisan, nonpolitical, independent public awareness effort. We are not associated with any legislative lobbying or advocacy.
