Are you looking for support in curating your homeschool curriculum to fit your child's needs? Well the fact that you are here reading this is a great start!


Did you know that some states offer homeschool grants or stipends for families to pay for eligible educational expenses? They are commonly known as Education Savings Accounts however you may also see them referred to as Empowerment Scholarship Accounts, or Educational Savings Accounts.


What Are Education Savings Accounts? Education Savings Accounts (ESAs) are a resource that is available to save families money and can be used on tutoring, private school tuition, curricula, educational therapy services and and other academic resources by using government scholarship funds. ESAs can also offer homeschooling families the opportunity to access public funds allocated per student as well.


Not to be confused with 529 college savings plans, ESAs initially launched in Arizona in 2011. ESAs were initially targeted towards students with disabilities, those from low-income backgrounds, and students attending underperforming schools. However, with the rise of homeschooling during the pandemic, their appeal has surged, prompting more states to adopt programs, enabling all K-12 students to benefit from them.


Which States Offer Education Savings Accounts?


Each state establishes unique guidelines regarding program eligibility, scholarship amounts, and the permissible use of ESA funds. For families residing in participating states, it's important to periodically visit their state’s ESA website for detailed information on application procedures and eligibility criteria as the rules can change from year to year.

*Please note that the availability and specifics of these programs may have changed, and new programs may have been introduced since our last update. Always check and verify with the relevant state authorities or homeschooling organizations for the most current information on grants or stipends for homeschooling families in your state.

How To Use An ESA?


Here's how it works: each state sets the amount of scholarship money and the criteria for what can be considered an eligible expense under ESA.


Now, when it comes to using your ESA, you've got a couple of options. You can either propose your own learning resources for approval by your state, or you can simply pick from the list of pre-approved resources available on your state's chosen platform.


Honestly, the easiest route? It's diving into your state's selected online platform and picking from the list of pre-approved educational resources already waiting for you there. They've got everything from homeschooling supplements to different learning materials and even live or virtual academic courses. It's like having a directory of approved education resources right at your fingertips! Integrate KidVestors Into Your Homeschool Curriculum
