Welcome to Brighter Choice Charter Elem. School for Girls!
Brighter Choice Charter Schools remain the only single-gender tuition-free elementary public schools serving the Capital Region. Established in 2002, the girls’ school provides parents a unique opportunity to give their daughter a gender specific education, as offered at many private academies. The Brighter Choice model combines high academic standards, a nurturing environment and heightened accountability. This combination provides children the exceptional urban elementary education they deserve.

The Mission of the Brighter Choice Charter School (BCCS) is to ensure that BCCS students have the same opportunities for further success as students attending the best public schools in the region. There are 3 significant components to achieving this mission:

Exemplary instruction that ensures competency and mastery in reading, writing and mathematics.
Focus on the development of social, behavioral, and organization skills necessary for future school success.
An education beyond the basics that includes: Performing Arts, Visual Arts, Sciences, and History.
