Alaska Governor Mike Dunleavy issues a proclamation recognizing January 21-27, 2024 as Alaska School Choice Week

There are a variety of school choice options available for many of the 180,000 children living in Alaska. Families in Alaska can choose from traditional public schools, public charter schools, public magnet schools, private schools, and homeschooling.

If you’re a parent looking for school choice options for your child head to our Alaska State Guide.

National School Choice Week (NSCW) informs, inspires, and empowers parents to discover the K-12 education options available for their children, including traditional public, charter, magnet, online, private, and homeschooling.

Every January, tens of thousands of schools, organizations, and individuals plan unique events and activities to shine a positive spotlight on effective education options in their communities.  The Week is a project of the nonpartisan, nonpolitical National School Choice Awareness Foundation.
