The Association is excited to invite all of our charter school allies and stakeholders to our 25th Anniversary Celebration of the passage of the New York State Charter Schools Act. In addition to marking this important milestone, we are thrilled to be showcasing the achievements of our state’s charter schools. During the event, we will be honoring former Governor George Pataki along with other elected charter champions. In addition, guests will be treated to a special performance by the talented students from Democracy Prep.

The celebration will take place on May 18, 2023, beginning at 6 p.m. at Inside Park at St. Bart’s (325 Park Ave, New York, NY). You can learn more about the event, as well as how to purchase tickets, by visiting our Anniversary Celebration Eventbrite page.
