Thank you to our teachers, administrators, and board members who take time out of their summer to attend our conference!  You’re the reason why we organize and host this conference!


The North Carolina Association for Public Charter Schools proudly presents the 2019 North Carolina Charter Schools Conference Reaching New Heights in Cherokee, NC!   This theme is inspired by the beautiful Smoky Mountains that lie across the western part of our state.   Throughout the conference we will encourage teachers, administrators, board members, and businesses to reach new heights in their roles.  As each of us reach new heights, our state charter school sector ultimately reaches new heights!


The conference will take place at Harrah’s Cherokee Resort & Convention Center July 21 – 23.  Owned by the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians located just outside the Great Smoky Mountains, this resort contains over 1,100 hotel rooms and suites making it the largest hotel in the state.  Resort amenities include a fitness center, indoor & outdoor pools, lounge, spa, family bowling alley & arcade, food court, Las Vegas style casino, and upscale restaurants including Ruth’s Chris Steak House!  As in previous years, we are expecting over 400 educators, administrators, board members, company representatives, and legislators to continue to make this the largest and most exciting charter event in our state!   Continue to check this page for updates as we get closer to the conference.
