Students at the J. Frank White Academy on the campus of Lincoln Memorial University joined other students around the country in participating in events during National School Choice Week, January 20-26.

National School Choice Week has raised awareness about the different educational opportunities available to children and families. Since its inception in 2011, information on traditional public schools to public charter schools, public magnet schools, online academics, private schools, and homeschooling has been made available to families.

The goal is to make it easy for families to find out what their options are and for great schools of all types to celebrate their strengths.
