School Choice Options In Ohio

There are a variety of school choice options available for many of the 2.6 million children living in Ohio. Families in Ohio can choose from traditional public schools, public charter schools, public magnet schools, private schools, online academies, and homeschooling.

Ohio families can use School Choice Week’s resources on a year-round basis 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 1609 schools and organizations to host independently-planned virtual events in the state. Our National School Choice Week 2022 celebrations are planned for January 23-29, 2022.

Governor Mike Dewine issued an official proclamation recognizing Ohio School Choice Week 2021.
