Welcome to ESA
The Empowerment Scholarship Account (ESA) program is an account administered by The Arizona Department of Education that is funded by state tax dollars to provide educational options for qualified Arizona students. By opting out of the public school system, parents can seek a range of alternative educational services, such as private school or home-based education, to tailor an individualized educational plan that is best for their child. The ESA program is not affiliated with any services, providers, vendors or websites, please ensure you are referring to our website and documents for program direction.
Applications are currently being accepted until September 1, 2018 for quarter 2 funding (October- December 2018).
Please see the ESA calendar page for applications and quarterly funding deadlines: ESA Calendar
