EdChoice Scholarship Program
The Educational Choice Scholarship (EdChoice) Program was created to provide students from underperforming public schools the opportunity to attend participating private schools. The program provides up to 60,000 EdChoice scholarships to eligible students.
Beginning with the 2013-2014 school year, up to 2,000 EdChoice Scholarships were provided to incoming kindergartners whose family income fell at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. The application will open February 1 of each year.
Students currently attending their assigned public school building in their resident district that is on the list of designated public schools are eligible to apply.
Public school students attending a school in their resident district who will be assigned to one of the designated public schools for the upcoming school year are also eligible to apply.
Students currently attending a charter/community school whose assigned home school is an eligible school on our list are also eligible to apply.
Students eligible to enter kindergarten for the upcoming school year who would be assigned to one of the designated public schools are also eligible to apply for the scholarship.
Students eligible to enter kindergarten whose family income is less than 200 percent of the Federal Poverty Guidelines are eligible beginning in the 2014-2015 school year. (Note: Only 2,000 EdChoice Scholarships are available to KINDERGARTEN students who are applying for the income-eligible EdChoice Scholarships.)
Note: Students seeking a "designated school" EdChoice Scholarship who are currently enrolled in and attending a designated public school building that is closing at the end of the school year are eligible to apply. However, students whose eligibility is based on being assigned to a closing "designated" school (e.g., incoming kindergarten students who are not income eligible) for the upcoming school year are NOT eligible for the scholarship. No student will be awarded a scholarship based on being assigned to a closing school.
