Charter Schools

Home Forums Charter Schools

Public schools open to all Chicago children. Charters are approved by the Board of Education but operate independently from the Board and each other. Each charter school has a curriculum, schedule, calendar and admissions procedures that may differ from other public schools. There are charter schools operated by community organizations, universities, foundations, and teachersā€”all are held accountable for high student academic achievement by the Board of Education. Generally, charter schools admit students based on lottery. No attendance boundary for most Charter schools. Students across the city can apply and are accepted by random lottery if moreĀ applications than available spaces.
