Why charter schools? Public charter schools give more options to Washington children — options that give every child the opportunity to succeed and be prepared for college and their careers.

By 2018, close to 70 percent of jobs in the Washington State will require a college degree or credential. Every child deserves to have access to these careers — to succeed in work and life. Washington state charter schools are working to ensure this becomes a reality.

Our mission is to support the start-up of high-quality public charter schools, with a focus on serving at-risk populations and students who do not currently have access to high-performing schools.
