There are a variety of school choice options available for many of the 2.7 million children living in Pennsylvania. Families in Pennsylvania can choose from traditional public schools, public charter schools, public magnet schools, private schools, online academies, and homeschooling.

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 home schooling.

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.

In January 2022, we partnered with 1,054 schools and organizations in Pennsylvania to raise awareness of K-12 education options. National School Choice Week 2023 will take place January 22-28, 2023.
