School Choice Options In Alabama
There are a variety of school choice options available for many of the 1.1 million children living in Alabama. Families in Alabama can choose from traditional public schools, public charter schools, public magnet schools, private schools, online academies, and homeschooling.
Alabama families can use School Choice Week’s resources year round to identify schools and learning environments that best meet their children’s needs. During our annual January celebrations, schools and organizations work to organize school fairs, parent information sessions, and other events to help parents learn about their options. In 2021, we partnered with 672 schools and organizations to host independently-planned virtual events in Alabama. Our National School Choice Week 2022 celebrations are planned for January 23-29, 2022.
Governor Kay Ivey issued an official proclamation recognizing Alabama School Choice Week 2021.
