Why attend? 

The Michigan Charter School Symposium is a conference built for charter professionals, by charter professionals, to celebrate charter professionals. We believe that beyond our competition and differences, the charter school movement is stronger when we come together to share, innovate and learn. 


This isn't just another

education conference

Charter schools are defined by unique and dynamic characteristics - and the teachers, school leaders, management companies, and authorizing bodies share those same differences as professionals. We know that, and we specifically build our sessions and supporting programming to best serve those unique needs. There are a lot of public education professional development opportunities - but this one is unapologetically charter driven and charter focused.

No single school, organization, or professional can do this alone. We're offering a day-and-a-half retreat for key strategizing, insight sharing and more. Together, we can make a difference in this PR battle.
