NEW YORK CITY CHARTER SCHOOLS WELCOME PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS AND FAMILIES FOR CHARTER SCHOOL OPEN HOUSE MONTH 2024
AS NYC CELEBRATES 25 YEARS OF CHARTER SCHOOLS, HUNDREDS OF CHARTERS ACROSS ALL FIVE BOROUGHS INVITE NYC FAMILIES FOR INFORMATION SESSIONS AND CAMPUS TOURS
(NEW YORK, NY) – Today, the New York City Charter School Center announced the launch of this year’s “Charter School Open House Month,” an annual opportunity for students and families to learn more about the high-quality public charter school options available in each of the five boroughs. This year’s Open House Month comes as communities, alumni, students, and educators celebrate 25 years of charter schools in New York City.
Across New York City, hundreds of local charter schools are opening 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.
Families are encouraged to visit the Charter Center’s Online Charter School Open House Calendar for more information and to find an open house event near them. The calendar offers a convenient tool for families to view upcoming events by borough and school type. Those interested in applying can use the Common Online Charter School Application to submit a single application to multiple schools at once. Applications are due on April 1, 2024.
“For 25 years, public charter schools have provided an entire generation of NYC families with high-quality education options for their children. ‘Charter School Open House Month’ is an exciting chance to open up those same doors of opportunity for the next generation,” said James Merriman, Chief Executive Officer of the New York City Charter School Center. “This month, public charters across the five boroughs are welcoming families to visit their classrooms, meet teachers, and get all the information they need to find the right school for their kids. For many families, this is the first step on their education journey – and charter school leaders across the city are thrilled to welcome them and show what makes their schools unique.”
