Brighter Choice Charter School for Boys

District: Albany City
Authorizer: NYS Board of Regents
The mission of the Brighter Choice Charter School for Boys is to help Albany students realize their right to a top-quality education, to create a meaningful alternative to existing district schools, and to ensure competency in reading and mathematics while providing a broad and rigorous liberal-arts education. The mission will be achieved by hiring teachers with subject-area expertise and requiring them to ensure the attainment of specific grade-by-grade learning standards; minimizing distractions to learning through strict discipline, providing a single-sex learning environment, instituting a dress code that requires school uniforms; and, ensuring accountability to parents and the broader community through comprehensive performance testing
