Voucher Program

What is the ESA program?

The ESA program allows eligible students to use state and local money toward education expenses, as well as tuition or fees at approved private schools. The ESA program will begin in the 2020-21 school year.

Each ESA is roughly $7,100 and will increase slightly each year. ESAs funds may be used at vendors pre-approved by the Department of Education for:

  • Tuition and fees at a participating K-12 school
  • Fees for transportation to and from school
  • Required textbooks
  • Computers or devices used for educational needs
  • School uniforms
  • Tutoring services provided by an approved tutor or facility
  • Summer or afterschool educational programs
  • Educational therapy services
  • Fees for high school dual enrollment courses at colleges and universities
  • Fees for college admission exams
  • Any unused ESA funds remaining after K-12 education may be rolled over into a college fund for tuition, fees, and textbooks at eligible colleges and universities, vocational, technical, or trade schools.
