Held every January, National School Choice Week is the world’s largest annual celebration of opportunity in education. The goal of School Choice Week is to raise public awareness of all types of education options for children.
Oxford Prep is one of more than 13,000 schools participating in School Choice Week January 22nd through 28th, 2017. The goal of the week is to shine a positive spotlight on all types of education options for children—from traditional public schools to public charter schools, magnet schools, private schools, online learning and homeschooling. Oxford Prep’s events will take place at each campus.
“We are thrilled to have Oxford Prep participate in National School Choice Week by holding this special event,” said Andrew Campanella, National School Choice Week president. “The Week provides an opportunity for families in communities across America to discover more about the education options available to children. We salute the students, teachers and staff at Oxford Prep for their dedication to providing a quality education for children, and for their involvement in this nationwide celebration.”
Charter schools are the fastest growing form of public school choice in the U.S. Since 2010, student enrollment in charter schools has increased by over 70 percent and there are now more students on waitlists than ever before.
