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 371 schools and organizations in Maryland to raise awareness of K-12 education options. National School Choice Week 2023 will take place January 22-28, 2023.
