Does my child qualify for a scholarship?
ACE scholarships are based solely on family income. See the chart for ACE Scholarship financial eligibility.
Who pays what?
A Cornerstone Education Scholarship will pay up to 75% of private school tuition, or a maximum of $3,000, $4,000, or $5,000 depending on where the family falls within the Poverty Guidelines (see chart). Families are responsible for working out a payment plan with the school for the remainder of the tuition. Scholarships will be capped at 35% of school enrollment.
Family Income Level
130% of Federal Poverty Guidelines = $5,000 award maximum
185% of Federal Poverty Guidelines = $4,000 award maximum
250% of Federal Poverty Guidelines = $3,000 award maximum
What schools participate?
A wide variety of private schools participate in the ACE Scholarship program. It is up to the families of potential scholarship recipients to select the best school for their child. ACE Scholarships provides financial support for the student but does not own or operate any of the schools. To see a complete list of schools, scroll down. Don’t see your private school choice on our list? Tell the school administration to contact us about partnering with ACE.
The ACE Scholarship can follow your child.
If your child is awarded a scholarship, those funds are portable during the school year and may be used at any partner private school. So if the private school you select ends up not being the right fit, you can transfer your child to another partner private school, and the scholarship goes with them.
