The LSSU Charter Schools Office is currently accepting applications for new charter schools.  We are seeking applications that are innovative and offer a unique educational option that is not already available in the proposed area.  Applications will be accepted from May 22th 2023, and close at 11:59 p.m. on July 14th 2023.  Note that academies outlined in the application will begin operations no sooner than the 2025-26 school year.

All applications should be sent to Jenny Peterman and Chris Oshelski .    An email confirmation will be sent once the application is received.

For more information, please either call 906-635-2121 or email

We look forward to reviewing your applications.  Thank you.
