About

WA Charters is a statewide nonprofit organization that advocates for and supports high-quality charter public schools.

We believe all students have the right to a high-quality public education.

After years of struggling with the status quo, students who have systemically been underserved in school, particularly students of color and from low-income households, have increased opportunities to attend a charter public school in their community.
