NEW YORK CITY CHARTER SCHOOLS WELCOME PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS AND FAMILIES FOR CHARTER SCHOOL OPEN HOUSE MONTH 2023
Hundreds of NYC Charter Schools to Host Information Sessions and Campus Tours for New York City Families
(NEW YORK, NY) – The New York City Charter School Center this week announced the launch of “Charter School Open House Month,” an annual opportunity for students and parents to learn more about the high-quality public school options available in each of the five boroughs.
As part of Charter School Open House Month, hundreds of local charter schools will open their doors – both virtually and in-person – to host information sessions, campus tours, and other events for families to explore curriculum offerings, meet school leaders, and learn more about the public charter schools in their neighborhoods.
The Charter Center’s Online Charter School Open House Calendar offers a convenient tool for families to view upcoming events by borough and school type, and those interested in applying can use the Common Online Charter School Application to submit a single application to multiple schools at once. Families are encouraged to submit their application before the window closes on April 1, 2023.
“Charter School Open House Month is an exciting opportunity for families to visit classrooms, meet school leaders, and learn more about what makes each school’s offerings unique,” said James Merriman, Chief Executive Officer of the New York City Charter School Center. “From strong academics, to world-class arts programs, career training and everything in between, there’s a public charter school that fits the needs of every child. New York City is home to a rich variety of charters – and they’re thrilled to welcome families into their halls to explore the full range of high-quality public school options available in their communities.”
