This is more than the story of America’s educational crisis. It’s the story of how we can solve it.
There’s a crisis in American education. Too many kids from lower-income families are falling between the cracks simply because they’re stuck in failing schools and can’t afford any other options. And it’s happening right here in Louisiana.
ACE Scholarships was founded in 2000 to provide these lower-income parents with school choice for their families through partial scholarships to K-12 private schools. In 2014, ACE Scholarships expanded its efforts nationally, to help more students receive the opportunity to have a choice in their K-12 education career. Louisiana was the third state of ACE’s national efforts.
ACE serves the children of lower-income families, the majority of which qualify for the federal Free and Reduced Lunch Program.
Additional Information for ACE Louisiana:
- ACE qualifies for the Louisiana Tuition Donation Credit (TDC) Program.
- ACE Scholarships Louisiana is an approved School Tuition Organization (STO) participating in the TDC Program.
- Receive a 95% state income tax credit as well as a federal tax deduction on the non-credit portion of your gift
Give a child the promise of a better tomorrow by becoming a donor today.
Please help us provide scholarships to lower-income children all over Louisiana and let’s give these children the opportunity for a great education and a lifetime of success.
