Application window is open between January 1st to April 1st to apply for the 2015 – 2016 academic year

Empowerment Scholarship Services (ESA) Is a publicly funded education savings-account program administered by the Arizona Department of education
The Children’s Center qualifies as an approved provider under ESA guidelines; as all of our teachers hold valid state teaching certificates that are required by the ESA program.

An Empowerment Scholarship Account (ESA) is an account similar to a checking account with 90% of the state funding that would have been received by the school the child previously attended.

If a child attended a public school, received an ESA, or received a scholarship under “Lexie’s Law” during the previous school year, the child may qualify for an ESA if he or she falls under at least one of the following categories:

  • The child has been placed into foster care and has been adopted
  • The child’s parent or guardian is an active duty member of the U.S. Armed Forces

  • An online learning program
  • Educational therapies or services
