NJPCSA is a membership organization and the statewide advocacy voice for NJ’s 88 public charter schools and the 54,587 students that they serve.

WE BELIEVE THAT every student deserves the chance to get a great public education at a school that puts their needs first regardless of zip code, income or ability level.

Our vision is that every child in the State of New Jersey has the opportunity to attend a high-quality public school that best meets his or her needs. We seek to advance quality public education for New Jersey’s children through excellent public charter schools.

Through the Associate Member program, NJPCSA maintains a directory of vendors that have pledged to provide a variety of products and services that benefit students, staff and the charter school community. Some Associate Members choose to offer opportunities and special pricing that are available only to current NJPCSA members. Being an Associate Member does not imply endorsement by the NJPCSA, nor does NJPCSA conduct research on or assume responsibility for the services and products extended by Associate Members. All schools are encouraged to conduct an independent analysis and review before signing any contracts with a vendor.
