About Florida Citizens Alliance
Florida Citizens Alliance champions K-12 education reform in Florida. As a 501-c3 nonprofit, FLCA’s mission is to improve Florida’s K-12 education by uniting and empowering teachers, students, and parents. 100% of donations go directly toward the three pillars of our mission: engaging local communities with our KIDS FIRST teams, providing alternative education resources through our Microschool initiative, and promoting legislative action.
Educating and Empowering Parents for Success
Transforming Florida's Education
Uniting Florida's Teachers, Students, and Parents
To improve Florida’s K-12 education by uniting and empowering teachers, students, and parents.
What We Do
Through community outreach, scholarships, education alternatives, and legislative action, Florida Citizens Alliance provides solutions for improving K-12 education in Florida.
What motivates us
We are motivated every time we see a child and their parents take advantage of their education. We strive to educate parents on their options so that they feel empowered to make the best decision for their family.
Our public education system is failing America’s students academically, civically and morally. Florida children are being indoctrinated in a public school system that undermines their individual rights and destroys our nation’s founding principles and family values.
What we Do
Our primary causes
At Florida Citizens Alliance, our primary causes revolve around promoting legislative action, engaging local communities, and providing alternative education resources. We actively advocate for meaningful education reform through collaboration with policymakers, while our KIDS FIRST teams engage parents, teachers, and students to empower them in making informed decisions about education. Through our Liberty Scholar initiative, we offer alternative education resources such as online courses and curriculum options. By uniting and empowering teachers, students, and parents, we strive to create a brighter future for Florida’s K-12 education system, prioritizing academic excellence, individual rights, and family values.
We engage with community leaders to help them understand current issues in our public education system how each of them can help to improve it…putting the kids first.
We provide parents and grandparents with alternative education resources, such as scholarship information, so that you can easily choose the best education for your family.
We advocate for parental choice and solutions that fuel student success with 100% of donations going directly to educating the public and supporting legislative action.
