Welcome to the Alliance Website!

Thank you for joining the Public Charter School Alliance at our 15th Annual South Carolina Public Charter School Conference! We hit a record number of attendees and had more breakout sessions than ever before! The speakers were enlightening, thought-provoking, and gave us all something to personalize and take home to use in our environment. The breakout sessions covered every topic imaginable to help further your mission in your charter school. If there were sessions you missed - no worries. When the speakers send us their presentations and back up materials, we will update the Breakout Session Slides page. It was great to see you all, and we thank you for all you do to make SC charter schools so great!

The mission of the Public Charter School Alliance of South Carolina is to strengthen public education for South Carolina students by supporting and advocating for high quality public charter schools.  

The Alliance is a nonprofit 501c3 organization with membership open to public charters schools and public charter school supporters including families, community leaders, and business leaders. Since our inception in 2001, a dedicated group of staff members, volunteers, and member schools have worked for significant legislative change to benefit South Carolina's charter public schools and to develop resources and supports for South Carolina's charter schools. Our strategic plans call for developing critical resources and powerful new ways to advocate for public charter schools in South Carolina.
