When we moved to Arizona, we found the perfect home. But the school my kindergartner was zoned for was a D/F rated school. Because of the school’s low rating, we planned to homeschool. We had no idea about ESAs (Education Savings Accounts). We didn’t discover them until Google brought us to the ESA website a few months into our homeschool journey.
Once our application was approved my son benefited from the ESA in so many ways. My family incorporates a lot of adventures and time in nature into our curriculum. We use our ESA to purchase curriculum, supplement our curriculum with enrichment and additional learning experiences, provide him with music education, and other classes that allow him to develop his strengths.

We love seeing him grow and learn at home, and we are so grateful for the freedom the ESA provides our family. Education is so important to our family and with the ESA, we have more options than I ever dreamed possible. The sky’s the limit for your family with an ESA; whether you use it for private school or home learning, giving families the opportunity to choose is so empowering.
All families should be able to choose the right school and education experience for their child because every child is unique. As a daughter of two public school teachers and as someone who loved my own public school experience, I realize that public school is not for everyone.
