During National School Choice Week, schools and organizations across South Carolina partner with families to raise awareness about the different K-12 education options available to children. This not-for-profit effort is designed to inform and assist parents while shining a positive spotlight on the importance of opportunity in education. In 2022, National School Choice Week will take place from January 23-29, 2022.

Governor Henry McMaster issued an official proclamation recognizing South Carolina School Choice Week 2021.
