The National Alliance maintains the most comprehensive and up-to-date charter school database in the country. The National Charter School Database contains information about charter school enrollment, demographics, locale, management type, and school focus among many other variables. In addition, our research team works to study, analyze, and disseminate information about issues that impact the charter school sector and public education more broadly. We also serve as thought leaders in the charter school sector and frequently partner with external organizations to conduct original research.
