Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT ARE CHARTER SCHOOLS?
ARE CHARTERS PUBLIC SCHOOLS?
HOW CAN I APPLY FOR A CHARTER SCHOOL? ARE THERE ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS?
By law, charter schools can never have selective admissions; anyone can apply and, if more students want to attend than there are seats available, there is a lottery to determine who is admitted.
DOES IT MATTER WHERE I LIVE? WHAT IS THE ATTENDANCE BOUNDARY?
As schools of choice, all charter schools are open to any student who wants to apply, regardless of where he or she lives, space permitting. Independent Study or non-classroom based schools have some geographical limitations such as only being open to students from a specific county.
