An ESA consists of 90% of the state funding that would have otherwise been allocated to the school district or charter school for the qualified student (does not include federal or local funding). By accepting an ESA, the student's parent or guardian is signing a contract agreeing to provide an education that includes at least the following subjects: reading, grammar, mathematics, social studies, and science. ESA funding can be used to pay private school tuition, curriculum, home education, tutoring, and more.
*Parents can apply for participation in the Arizona Empowerment Scholarship Account program by establishing an ADEConnect account at https://esa.azed.gov/Account After applications are processed, the Arizona Department of Education (ADE) will send participating parents an ESA contract.
