School Choice Options In Pennsylvania

There are a variety of school choice options available for many of the 2.7 million children living in Pennsylvania. Families in Pennsylvania can choose from traditional public schools, public charter schools, public magnet schools, private schools, online academies, and homeschooling.

You can discover more information about the school choice options available for your family by reading our Pennsylvania School Choice Roadmap.

As a nonprofit, charitable effort, School Choice Week works throughout the year to develop and provide free, practical, and unbiased school search resources for Pennsylvania 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 1,054 schools and organizations in Pennsylvania 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.
