School Choice Options In Arkansas

There are a variety of school choice options available for many of the 721,000 children living in Arkansas. Families in Arkansas can choose from traditional public schools, public charter schools, public magnet schools, private schools, and homeschooling.

Arkansas 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 462 schools and organizations to host independently-planned virtual events in Arkansas. Our National School Choice Week 2022 celebrations are planned for January 23-29, 2022.

Governor Asa Hutchinson issued an official proclamation recognizing Arkansas School Choice Week 2021.
