Arizona ESA Scholarship
for Homeschool Funding

The Empowerment Scholarship Account (ESA) initiative, managed by the Arizona Department of Education (ADE) and funded through state taxes, provides funding for eligible Arizona students in grades K–12 to pursue an education outside of a public or charter school. The Arizona ESA scholarship provides between $6,500 to $7,000 to participating students.

Arizona ESA funds can be used for homeschooling, private school fees, purchasing approved curricula, tutoring, and more. By opting to use an ESA, the child’s parent or guardian agrees to provide education in the state’s required subjects, which include reading, grammar, math, social studies, and science. 

Students applying for an ESA scholarship cannot be enrolled in a public or charter school.   

Top 3 Benefits of the Arizona ESA 


Financial Support for Homeschooling

An ESA can help homeschooling families in Arizona offset the costs of educating their children, including approved curricula, learning materials and supplies, standardized tests, tutors, therapists, and more.  


Personalized Education 

The Arizona ESA allows families to choose from a variety of schooling options, enabling them to find an educational path that works best for them and their child. Home educators can choose from pre-approved curricula or request approval for a curriculum of their choice.  

Homeschool+ is a pre-approved homeschool curriculum for ages 4–8 for those using the Arizona ESA.


Expanded Educational Opportunities 

The funds provided by the Arizona ESA alleviate some of the financial burdens of home education, allowing families to choose materials, experiences, and curriculum based on their preferences instead of their budgets. Having access to financial support opens the doors to more learning opportunities for homeschooling families and allows them to access more educational resources.

Applying for an ESA Scholarship 

There are several steps involved in applying for an Arizona ESA. If you need additional information, visit the Arizona Department of Education website’s ESA requirements page

Who is eligible for the Arizona ESA?

All Arizona K–12 students attending private schools or a homeschool are eligible. Pre-K students with special needs may also be eligible for an ESA. 

Arizona students cannot receive ESA funding and funding from another scholarship through the state’s tuition tax credit programs at the same time.   

Find a detailed list of eligibility requirements on the Arizona Department of Education website.

ESA accepts applications online all year. The scholarship amount is divided into four quarterly disbursements that are distributed during these periods: 

  • July 1–September 30 
  • October 1–December 31 
  • January 1–March 31 
  • April 1–June 30

How do I receive and use my ESA Scholarship funds?
