What to Expect

At a San Antonio Charter Moms School Discovery Day event, families can expect to meet representatives of a dozen or more schools of choice. Most of the schools represented will be tuition-free, open-enrollment charter schools that are open to all students. Events may also include choice schools within traditional public school districts, such as SAISD Choice Schools. A few programs may be tuition-based, such as early childhood programs or schools in the Archdiocese of San Antonio. Representatives from the schools are eager to talk with families, answer questions, and help with school tours, enrollment applications, and more.

School Discovery Days have a fun atmosphere for family members of all ages. The schools put their best foot forward, bringing extras like mascots and robots, and giving away prizes and school supplies. Each event will have a different mix of entertainment and activities such as face painting, bounce castles, and a DJ. Food trucks and local businesses have food and drink available for purchase.

At the San Antonio Charter Moms table, our team members are on hand to answer questions about your school search and how to find the right fit for your children. We also have scavenger hunt sheets so families can visit each school table, get a stamp, and turn in the form for an entry in our raffle. The prizes vary at each event but often include gift cards for groceries and school supplies. We are eager to have conversations about how parents can become advocates for high-quality education in our community, and how school choice gives families the range of education options they need to help their children get ready for the future.

To give you an idea of what to expect at a School Discovery Day, here is a walk of our event at Hemisfair on November 7, 2021.
