As a nonprofit, charitable effort, School Choice Week works throughout the year to develop and provide free, practical, and unbiased school search resources for New Jersey families.

During our annual awareness celebrations each January, schools and homeschool groups partner with community organizations to plan school fairs, parent information sessions, open houses and other awareness events to spotlight the diversity of education options available in the state. In January 2022, we will partner with 689 schools and organizations in New Jersey to raise awareness of K-12 education options.

Our National School Choice Week 2022 celebrations are planned for January 23-29, 2022. We encourage you to participate by sharing our school search resources and graphics on your social media platforms.
