President, National School Choice Week

Blue Mountain Beach, Florida

Andrew Campanella has served as president of National School Choice Week since 2012. An enthusiastic advocate for educational opportunity, Andrew has led National School Choice Week (NSCW) during a time of remarkable growth.

Before joining the NSCW team, Andrew worked in senior-level positions at two national non-profit organizations focused on K-12 education. In these roles, Andrew worked to help enroll students in school choice programs, and to recruit new teachers for public schools.

Andrew grew up in southern New Jersey and attended traditional public schools from grades K-12. He graduated from American University in Washington, D.C. and currently lives in Blue Mountain Beach, Florida.

Andrew is the author of the forthcoming book, “The School Choice Roadmap: 7 Steps to Finding the Right School for Your Child.”
