Since first launched in New Orleans in 2008 and expanded statewide in 2012, the Louisiana Scholarship Program has helped thousands of Louisiana families choose a school that best fits their children.
Educational choice works for Louisiana families. More than 8,700 students currently benefit from the Louisiana Scholarship Program, Tuition Donation Rebate Program and School Choice Program, which serves students with disabilities.
Nearly 11,000 families applied to attend a Louisiana Scholarship Program school during the 2016-2017 school year. While the demand is growing for school choice, parents continue to show overwhelming satisfaction with the program for the seventh straight year, with 95 percent of parents reporting they are happy with their child’s academic progress. Nearly all parents report their child feels safe and happy in their current scholarship school, thanks to the ability to choose the school that best fits their child’s individual learning needs.
