CA Charter Schools Celebrate 20th Anniversary - More than 1,000 Schools Statewide!

California history was made 20 years ago when the Charter Schools Act was signed. Since then, the charter school movement has grown beyond what was imagined. Thank you for being a part of the charter school movement, which is celebrating 20 years of reinventing public education.

During this milestone year, 109 new charter schools opened across the state. This brings the total number of charter schools in California to 1,065. In addition, the number of students enrolled in charter schools grew to 484,000.
