Nearly 100 Rhode Island Families Explore Charter School Options

The R.I. League of Charter Schools welcomed nearly 100 families to our fair to learn more about our 20 public schools across the state and receive assistance completing an application. The high attendance reflects the increased demand for charter schools over the past few years. Rhode Island charter schools received a record 23,263 applications in 2022 for 2,353 available seats, a 17% increase from the prior school year.

For families that were unable to attend, our website provides a wealth of information, including school profiles. Charter schools continue to host in-person open houses on a rolling basis, as well. Click here to view our calendar.
