National School Choice Week, January 22-28
Held every January,
National School Choice Week
is the world's largest annual celebration of opportunity in education. Across the country, more than 20,000 independently planned events will shine a positive spotlight on effective education options for children. Events are diverse in size and type - from pep rallies featuring the National School Choice Week dance to open houses, parent information sessions, large-scale rallies, roundtable discussions, and more.
As Catholics, we recognize that parents have the right and responsibility to educate their children. It follows that school choice is a necessary component of that belief. The FCCB regularly advocates for public policies that provide increased opportunities for parents to select the educational environment that best meets the needs of their children.
Catholic schools in Florida participate in several school choice programs available in our state. Click
