Scholarships and Tuition Assistance
eLearning Academy provides three scholarship opportunities to assist parents with tuition. eLearning Academy cannot guarantee eligibility for or issuance of a scholarship, as they are awarded by outside entities (Arete, voucher program, eLearning Foundation).
Arete Scholars provides privately funded K-12 scholarships to qualifying low-to-moderate-income families. The scholarships empower those parents who otherwise have no options to select a school that best meets their child's unique gifts, talents, and learning needs. Students must be either enrolling in kindergarten in 2018, or enrolled in a Louisiana public school on both October 1, 2017, and February 1.,2018.The application process opens February 27, 2018, and closes April 30, 2018. Applications are accepted on a first come, first served basis. Families must provide proof of Louisiana residency and income. Family income cannot exceed 250% of the current federal poverty level (see chart below).
The Louisiana Scholarship Program, commonly called the voucher program, provides state-funded K-12 scholarships to students to attend the school of their choice. Students must be either enrolling in kindergarten in 2018, or enrolled in a Louisiana public school with a score of C, D, or F on both October 1, 2017 and February 1. 2018. The scholarships are awarded through a lottery system. Families must provide proof of Louisiana residency and income. Family income cannot exceed 250% of the current federal poverty level (see chart below). Applications for the 2018-19 school year closed on February 23, 2018.
If your student does not qualify for or is not awarded assistance from any of the above opportunities, scholarships may be available through the eLearning Foundation when funds allow. Applications will close on May 31, 2018. Families must provide proof of income. Family income cannot exceed 250% of the current federal poverty level. eLearning Foundation will prioritize families with burdensome medical bills for children suffering prolonged illnesses, even when income exceeds 250% of the current federal poverty level (see chart below).
In addition to the three scholarship opportunities, eLearning Academy also has an agreement to provide curriculum to students jointly enrolled in University View Academy (UVA) and eLearning Academy.
Through our unique partnership, UVA will pay for eLearning Academy’s curriculum when students are jointly enrolled in UVA and eLearning Academy. Any onsite instruction fees and tuition are the responsibility of the parent or guardian. UVA is a public charter school serving Louisiana students. New student applications opened February 2, 2018. Applications are approved by UVA on a first come, first served basis. Families must provide proof of Louisiana residency, but there are no income requirements or previous public school attendance requirements.
