The Educational Choice Scholarship (EdChoice) Pilot 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.
Students currently attending there assigned public school 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.
Note: Students currently attending private school and home-schooled students are NOT eligible to apply for an EdChoice scholarship.
