Thank you to our teachers, administrators and other attendees who take time out of their summer to come to our conference each year! You’re the reason why we organize and host this conference. We are here to serve you.

The North Carolina Association for Public Charter Schools proudly presents the 2018 North Carolina Charter Schools Conference Building Bridges in Sunset Beach, NC! This theme is inspired by the Mannon C. Gore bridge that connects Sunset’s mainland to its barrier island. Throughout the conference we will explore the various ways bridges can be built to make connections between stakeholders, including teachers, parents, administrators, board members, businesses, and our district counterparts.




The conference will take place at the Sea Trail Golf Resort & Convention Center July 15 – 17. Complete with three award-winning golf courses indoor and outdoor pools, fitness center, sauna, and two on-site restaurants, the Sea Trail is one of the largest full-service conference centers on the North Carolina coast! We are expecting over 400 educators, administrators, board members, parents, business members, and legislators to continue to make this the largest and most exciting charter event in our state! Continue to check this page for updates (schedule, raffle prizes, and receptions) as we get closer to the conference.
