Who We Are:

Options for Youth is a network of free public charter schools offering students a flexible, personalized approach to learning. OFY saw the potential that struggling students couldn’t see in themselves.

For almost 30 years, OFY has helped more than 135,000 students find their passion and pursue their dreams. OFY believes in fostering the student’s vision; inspiring students inspires us. We believe the student-teacher relationship is critical to the development of a young person’s social, emotional, and academic well-being. If you believe this too, then you might be the educator that we’re looking for.
