Educational choice gives parents the freedom to choose their children's education and encourages healthy competition among schools to better serve families' needs. Educational choice lets parents use the public funds set aside for their children's education to choose the education—public or private, near or far, religious or secular—that work best for them.
Most states in the USA have school choice options
- Education Savings Account

Why Christian Schooling?
The choice you make for your children's education shapes them in various ways. A Christian education at an ACSI member school will help your child grow spiritually, academically, and culturally. In fact, the recent Cardus Education Survey and other education studies show that ACSI schools develop the whole child better than any other type of school. Watch this brief video to learn how!
