About Florida's Charter Schools
Charter schools are public schools of choice. They are very popular—and among the fastest growing school choice options in Florida. Charter schools are largely free to innovate, and often provide more effective programs and choice to diverse groups of students.
Since 1996, the number of charter schools in Florida has grown to over 654 in 2016-17. Charter school student enrollment now tops 283,000 students. Check out the Charter School Program Statistics (PDF) for more details.
