Delaware's Charter School Choice

Not every school is best for every child. In Delaware, you have the opportunity to choose the school that best fits your child's needs. 

The families of 17,201 students made a charter school choice for the 2021 – 22 school year. Have you made your choice for the 2022-23 school year yet? The window for school choice applications closed on the 2nd Wednesday in January for schools that have more applications than spots. But that doesn't mean that you can't still make a charter choice!

Need a space and not sure what your options are? Check out our School Locator and our School Directory. Put in your address, and all of the charter schools close to you will come up. Or click on the grade range that you are looking for – need an Elementary School, choose that option and our elementary charters will come up. If you want to talk to someone about your choices and open spaces, call our office – 302.778.5999

For quick information, check out our series for parents on our Instagram page @the_village_of_dcsn: School Choice In A Minute and our Facebook Live events on our FB page @DECharters.

What is a Charter School?

Charter schools are independent, tuition-free public schools, serving students from kindergarten to 12th grade. The “charter” establishing each school is a contract, which states the school’s mission, program and measurable goals. Charter schools may be authorized by the State Department of Education or a local school district. They are accountable to their authorizer, parents and the public. Charter schools are different from traditional public schools in that they can only remain open as long as they deliver the results that they promise.
