School Choice Options In Colorado

There are a variety of school choice options available for many of the 1.3 million children living in Colorado. Families in Colorado can choose from traditional public schools, public charter schools, public magnet schools, private schools, online academies, and homeschooling.

Colorado 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 499 schools and organizations to host independently-planned virtual events in Colorado. Our National School Choice Week 2022 celebrations are planned for January 23-29, 2022.

Governor Jared Polis issued an official proclamation recognizing Colorado School Choice Week 2021.
