Schools of Choice

The seven public school districts within St. Clair County participate in the contiguous and countywide Schools of Choice program each year as part of their continuing effort to provide a quality education to all students.

This countywide Schools of Choice program allows parents and students to choose which public school they would like to  attend regardless of where they live in St. Clair County.
