Empowerment Scholarship Accounts for Private Education

As we look toward the end of the year, one item that can be missed by parents and students is the opportunity to have funding cover the expense of students’ private education here in Arizona.  The Arizona Empowerment Scholarship Accounts (ESA) exists to provide education for qualified students.  In fact, the Arizona ESA brochure reads that the “program’s main purpose is to provide options for parents to freely choose how and where to educate their children with financial assistance from the state.”  As such, Life Development Institute (LDI) wants you to know that all applications for ESA must be completed and submitted between January 1, 2016 and April 1, 2016.

At LDI, we provide an ideal transition from high school to higher education, employment, and better quality of life for students with Asperger’s syndrome, PDD, NLD, ADHD, and similar social or learning differences through our Private High School Program called ALL, which stands for the Academy of Lifelong Learning.  Through ALL, LDI offers two graduation options to complete requirements for a regular High School Diploma.  Furthermore, courses include honors options and Advanced Placement (AP) as well as ACT’s National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC), a Career Ready Course, and a Soft Skills Suite, which develops personal and behavioral skills such as work habits, business etiquette, and communication skills necessary to keep a job and grow a future.

Currently, we have rolling admissions and an open entry process for trimester starting points.  This means you can register students for the upcoming Spring Trimester or the Fall Trimester of 2016, wherein you can take advantage of ESA to fund the education!   In fact, LDI is so committed to their vision and students that we will assist with the completion of ESA applications for any students who apply to LDI.
