“Who” we are

We are a partnership of employees, volunteers, educators, policy-makers, legislators, businesses, and public supporters who believe that choice and positive competition using high quality public charter schools are owed the children of North Carolina and represent good public policy!

Please join the Association. Go to Join now and see the services we offer that include remaining the state’s leading charter advocate, providing legislative oversight, training workshops and conferences, communications forums, and  leveraging the sector’s buying power working with our business partners.

The Association’s focus is on the interests of the state’s existing public charter schools and helping ensure their success, but our effort includes helping grow other charters so more families have educational choices in our state.. The Association is a not for profit, non partisan organization based in Charlotte, North Carolina.
