Scholarships, Nevada education savings account and more

The State of Nevada has made available to programs that will provide the funds for your child to attend private school.

Senate Bill 302 provides a mean for parents to choose a different option to meet their education needs, NEVADA’S EDUCATING SAVINGS ACCOUNT PROGRAM.

A parent who wishes to choose something other than a public school can simple apply for an Education Savings Account and a percentage of what the state funds for their child’s public education will be deposited into an account for that child. The average is about $5100 per year.

These funds can be used for private school tuition, books, fees to enroll in virtual school, curriculum materials, specialized services or therapies for a student with a disability, transportation and tutoring. APPLICATIONS ARE NOW BEING ACCEPTED go to
