“Rhode Island charter schools are proud to offer free, public-school options for all Rhode Island families seeking public school alternatives for their children,” said Keith A. Oliveira, executive director of the Rhode Island League of Charter Schools. “We know one-size public education does not fit all students. More and more Rhode Island families are seeking the innovative, student-centered learning environments that our charter schools provide.”

Charter schools are public schools, free and open to all Rhode Island students. Charters schools are located throughout Rhode Island and provide elementary, middle, and high school options. Rhode Island families can learn more about public charter school options by exploring the family information tool and applying at
