Moore County School Choice Expo returns for third year in a row

PINEHURST — The third annual Moore County School Choice Expo is scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 27, in Pinehurst, coinciding with the final day of this year’s National School Choice Week.

The event will be at Sandhills Community College Campus with the aim of providing information to Moore County parents about various K-12 education options.

“At our last two Expos, we realized that a growing number of local parents are eager to explore all the alternatives available to them where the education of their children is concerned,” said Caroline Kelly, one of the event’s chief organizers. “Parents prefer to visit face-to-face with school representatives and education service providers and have their questions answered personally.

“Parents will be able to easily explore the various options and determine the best fit for their children,” Kelly said. “Plus, education providers will have a chance to learn about the needs and desires of local parents.”

Education providers, including public, charter, private, and online schools, as well as home learning groups and resource providers, will be present to offer insights and answer questions.

The Expo facilitates face-to-face interactions between parents and school representatives, allowing them to explore different education alternatives.

Information tables will be set up at the event for Charter and private schools, as well as Moore County Public Schools.

The event also includes discussions on homeschooling, online education, and information on how high school students can take college classes through the Career & College Promise program.

The Expo’s website is Updates about the Expo can be found on Facebook under the Mocoeducationsummit account and on the Instagram account mocoschoolexpo.
