Types of Alternatives

We invite you to add to this list of educational alternatives that are a choice for students. Send additional items by using the Contact Us button and we'll make the list more comprehensive. Here's a start on the list: charter schools, Montessori schools, Waldorf schools, online schools, distant learning programs, magnet schools, private schools, schools within schools, open schools, storefront schools, at-risk schools, voucher programs, religion schools, vocational schools, middle colleges, GED programs.

Of course, some of these categories are very specific. Others like charter schools convey a wide range of practices. It is estimated by Dr. Robert Barr that there are some 20,000 alternatives in the U.S.
