The Charter School Institute has five new charter schools opening this fall. They are:
1. Caprock Academy in Grand Junction
2. Colorado Springs Early Colleges in Colorado Springs
3. Ricard Flores Magon Charter School in Westminster
4. Cesar Chavez Colorado Springs--Central
5. 21st Century @ Colorado Springs (a transfer)
Many of these schools have added additional classrooms and still have waiting lists. It's apparent that the Charter School Institute law has created a much-needed opportunity for many families.
