What is a Charter School?

A Charter School is a state-funded program that allows schools to operate with more flexibility than traditional public schools. Charter Schools are similar to public schools in many ways, including being required to meet all state graduation and testing standards. All those who qualify for graduation receive a state-accredited high school diploma, just like you receive at a traditional public high school.

Are charter schools public schools?

Charters schools are public schools. They are non-sectarian, tuition-free, and open to any student who wishes to attend. Charter schools allow parents, teachers and the community to transform our public-school system. Choice is a powerful tool for parents seeking access to quality education for their children.

Is there a cost to attend?

As a public school, there is no cost to attend and admission is not based on an external characteristic, such as academic ability or family income.

Can my child graduate early? Is there an opportunity for my child to catch up on credits?

Taylion offers three flexible pathways to all students whether they are at, above, or below grade level. Our counselors will meet with your student after enrollment to discuss their goals and create a personalized learning plan to help them reach that goal.
