MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Parents interested in Shelby County’s Optional Schools will soon be able to learn more about the educational opportunities available in the district.

Starting Monday, each of the 46 Optional Schools will be hosting an open house on select nights.

Each school offers in-depth, rigorous coursework focused on specific areas of study like Enriched Academics, the Health Sciences and Automotive Technology. The events allow parents to see what each school offers and ask any questions they may have.

Applications for the upcoming school year will be accepted starting January 27.
