School choice changes lives.

When parents have the power to choose learning environments that best meet their children’s needs, students are more likely to learn, thrive, succeed, and be happy.

The National School Choice Awareness Foundation raises broad awareness of school choice so that parents can access education options for their children.

School choice includes all learning environments.

At the National School Choice Awareness Foundation, we believe that school choice is about personal decisions made by families, not politics. That is why we raise equal awareness of the education options parents have or want for their children, including traditional public, public charter, public magnet, private, online, home, and nontraditional learning environments. 

Through our three charitable programs, we directly support schools and serve parents.
