    Brighter Choice Charter Schools remain the only single-gender tuition-free elementary public schools serving the Capital Region. Established in 2002, the boys’ school provides parents a unique opportunity to give their son a gender specific education, as offered at many private academies. The Brighter Choice model combines high academic standards, a nurturing environment and heightened accountability. This combination provides children the exceptional urban elementary education they deserve.

    Brighter Choice Charter School for Boys accommodates students with disabilities, English language learners and participates in the free and reduced meals program.
