ACE Scholarships Louisiana is a School Tuition Organization and offers scholarships to qualified children on a first-come, first-served basis for as long as funds are available.

ACE is partnering with private schools throughout Louisiana to offer parents a wide variety of choices. Visit our website: www.acescholarships.org/become-a-scholar/louisiana/ for a complete listing of current partner schools.
If you do not see your private school choice on our list, tell the school administration to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 504-491-1813 about partnering with ACE in the Tuition Donation Credit Program.
If your child is awarded a scholarship, those funds are portable during the school year and may be used at any qualifying private school. So, if the private school you select ends up not being the right fit, you can transfer your child to another participating private school and the scholarship goes with you.
