About NJPCSA

The New Jersey Public Charter Schools Association is the non-profit membership organization and statewide advocacy voice for the state’s 87 public charter schools and the 58,714 students they serve. We believe that every student deserves the chance to receive a great public education at a school that best meets their needs, regardless of their zip code, income, or ability level.

NJPCSA seeks to influence legislative and policy environments, leverage collective advocacy, and provide resources to support our members in developing and operating high quality, public charter schools. With 99% of New Jersey’s eligible charter schools as dues paying members, NJPCSA has one of the highest membership rates in the country.
