AAA Scholarship Foundation
AAA Scholarship Foundation works with schools in each of our scholarship states to make Academic Achievement Accessible. We can not do that without excellent schools for families to choose from.
Each state has individual guidelines determined by the laws of that state and the accountability guidelines of the AAA Scholarship Foundation. Please choose your state to view details on school participation.
Black Alliance for Educational Options
The Philadelphia BAEO K-5 Scholarship Program provides Philadelphia’s low-income public-school students with an opportunity to attend a private school. It also benefits students from low-income families what are already in private schools. This scholarship program is unique in that it requires students to maintain high academic standards and parents to be active participants in their child’s education. Awards are presented based on family income, parent involvement and student achievement. Priority is given to families who are members of BAEO, who have an annual income of less than $30,000 and whose children currently attend public schools.
