Educational Options

The Center for Educational Options works to expand, enhance, and ensure equitable access to high quality educational options for learners of all ages, especially for those who have been historically underserved. These options include traditional public schools; charter, vocational/technical, and virtual schools; early college and innovation pathway programs; adult education; out-of-school time, and other educational programs such as METCO and school choice. See Choosing a School: A Family Guide to Educational Options in Massachusetts for more information.
