Families will celebrate National School Choice Week with school discovery days, organized by San Antonio Charter Moms.
San Antonio Charter Moms is hosting a series of free School Discovery Days to help families during the enrollment season for 2023-24 school year. The largest event will be on Saturday, January 21, 2023—during National School Choice Week—at the DoSeum, San Antonio’s children’s museum. The DoSeum is a place where minds are always at play. Interactive fun and hands-on learning come together through exhibits, programs, camps, classes, and field trips designed for all learners. They encourage young minds to explore the joy of learning through connections to STEM, the arts, and literacy.
This community event aims to raise awareness among families of the benefits of applying during open enrollment to schools of choice. Families in San Antonio will be able to explore the range of school options available to them, and learn about the timeline for starting their school search up to a year before their child would begin attending. In addition to talking with schools, families attending School Discovery Day at the DoSeum will also enjoy the sounds of DJs from the AM Project. Families will have the opportunity to visit the DoSeum (9:00 AM–5:00 PM), which charges admission but offers various discounts. The DoSeum also has a café on site.
Families attending School Discovery Day at the DoSeum will have a chance to meet with representatives from the following schools:
Anne Frank Inspire Academy, BASIS Charter Schools, Brooks Academies of Texas, CAST Schools, Compass Rose Public Schools, Edgewood ISD Schools of Innovation, Essence Prep, The Gathering Place, Great Hearts Texas, Harmony Public Schools, IDEA Public Schools, Jubilee Academies, KIPP Texas—San Antonio, Legacy Traditional Schools—Texas, Lighthouse Public Schools, New Frontiers Public Schools, Pre-K 4 SA, Prelude Prep, Promesa Academy, Royal Public Schools, SA Prep, SAISD Choice Schools, School of Science and Technology, Southwest Prep.
