1st Annual Upper Valley School Choice and Camp Fair Scheduled for January 30th

Mount Royal Academy to participate.

Educational institutions and organizations from the upper valley invited to participate in nation's largest ever celebration of educational opportunity. 

NEWPORT – A special event will take place on Saturday, January 30, 2016 at 10:00 AM, to celebrate National School Choice Week.

Public schools, private schools, and summer camps all share a common goal: to educate young people. There is a surging interest in making educational experiences available to students, regardless of geographic location. We also share an established awareness that each child deserves not just the right to an education, but the right to an educational experience that suitably satisfies the needs of a particular child. The goal of the fair is simple: to partner together in order promote school choice and alternative educational experiences. Parents, families, and all interested parties are invited to speak with school officials about school choice, and speak with representatives from participating schools.

12,000 schools are participating in National School Choice Week (January 24–30, 2016). The goal of the Week is to shine a positive spotlight on all types of education options for children—from traditional public schools to public charter schools, magnet schools, private schools, online learning and homeschooling. The event will be held at Sugar River Bank Community Room.

“We are thrilled to have schools from the Upper Valley participate in National School Choice Week by holding this special event,” said Andrew Campanella, National School Choice Week president. “The Week provides an opportunity for families in communities across America to discover more about the education options available to children. We salute the students, teachers and staff at participating schools for their dedication to providing a quality education for children, and for their involvement in this nationwide celebration.”
