Opportunity Scholarship Program
The North Carolina State Education Assistance Authority (NCSEAA) expands school choice in North Carolina through scholarship grants for eligible children in kindergarten through 12th grade. This program provides funding of up to $4,200 per year for eligible children who choose to attend an approved participating private school and LSA is excited to be a participating school. This program serves to assist families who up until now may not have considered a private Christian education as an option. Families interested in the Opportunity Scholarship administered by the State Education Assistance Authority will need to complete an online application at www.ncseaa.edu/OSG.htm.

Children with Disabilities Grant
The Special Education Scholarship Grant for Children with Disabilities Program (CDG Program) was created by the North Carolina General Assembly to help parents pay qualified expenses for children with disabilities who wish to attend private nonpublic schools. LifeSpring Academy is excited to be an eligible school for the CDG Program.
The North Carolina public school system determines who is a “child with a disability” for the CDG Program. The Disabilities Grant Program was created by the North Carolina General Assembly to help parents pay qualified expenses for children with disabilities who attend school in an eligible private school. The Disabilities Grant Program is for children who are just starting school, or who are currently attending a public school and change to an eligible school.
The Disabilities Grant application for the 2015-16 school year is closed. The application for the 2016-17 school year will open on May 1, 2016.
