There are a variety of school choice options available for many of the 1.1 million children living in Louisiana. Families in Louisiana can choose from traditional public schools, public charter schools, public magnet schools, private schools, online academies, and homeschooling.

If you’re a parent looking for school choice options for your child head to our Louisiana State Guide.

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 2024, we are partnering with 457 schools and organizations in Louisiana to raise awareness of K-12 education options.
