ESA - Education Savings Account
The most important investment we can make is investing in our children’s future. In 2019 the Tennessee General Assembly did just that by passing an expanded Education Savings Accounts (ESA) program for low income children.
Tennessee’s Education Savings Account (ESA) program is planned to launch for the 2020-21 school year in Davidson and Shelby counties. With the ESA program, eligible students assigned to schools in Davidson County, Shelby County, or the Achievement School District can use state and local Basic Education Program (BEP) funds toward expenses, such as tuition or fees, at participating private schools.
This program will bring life-changing opportunities to thousands of families across the Volunteer State.
Families can begin applying for this program in January of 2020 for the 2020-2021 academic year.
