From June 11-14, 2017, over 4,500 of our nation’s dedicated educators, innovators, and philanthropists gathered for the National Charter Schools Conference. This year in Washington, D.C., we "educated, innovated, and engaged" with our attendees. Check out the action below!

  1. Sunday, NCSC17 Day 1
  2. The National Charter Schools Conference got off to a great start with our pre-conference, "Pre-K and Charter Schools: Ensuring Quality, Securing Funding, and Exploring New Partnerships." Co-hosted with the First Five Years Fund, this pre-conference was the first national convening of the charter school community to discuss Pre-K.
  3. We officially kicked off NCSC17 on Sunday evening with our "Netflix and Networking" welcome reception, a nod to Tuesday's keynote speaker, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings. With fun selfie stations including the Oval Office from House of Cards and a Polaroid booth that the Stranger Things characters would have loved, we all let loose before the big week.

  5. Monday, NCSC17 Day 2
  6. We started Day 2 of NCSC17 with National Alliance President & CEO Nina Rees on the main stage, reminding us that we can't let political turmoil stop our movement's progress. Dr. Steve Perry inspired everyone with his keynote on controversy - and how we need to fight harder for our students and our community.
  7. Success Academy Charter Schools was named the winner of the 2017 Broad Prize for Public Charter Schools, after a motivating update from last year's winner, IDEA Public Schools CEO Tom Torkelson.
  8. The day continued with inspiring breakout sessions and a new conference feature - Charter Talks, modeled after the famed "TED Talks" - in the exhibit hall.
