What is an ESA?

Arizona families who qualify can apply for ESA at ANY time! Please let us know if we can help!

The Empowerment Scholarship Account program, commonly referred to as ESA, began in Arizona in 2011. ESA’s are a unique and exciting option for Arizona families. Families can apply for an ESA year round. The ESA program is administered by the Arizona Department of Education and provides educational options for qualified Arizona students. According to ADE, parents who choose an ESA for their child are accessing alternatives for their education, such as private school or a home – based educational model. This allows families to utilize tutors and therapists in order to meet the unique educational needs of their child. Please visit the Arizona Department of Education ESA homepage for more information on application questions, processing deadlines, etc. If you have questions about the ESA program, please feel free to reach out to us at hello@loveyourschool.org. We would love to help answer any questions you may have.


All K-12 students are qualify for an ESA! For more information about ESAs visit our ESA update page here. Or click here to get our quick fact sheet on ESAs.
