What is Means-Tested Eligibility?
Means-tested programs are designed to empower students from low-income families to attend the school of their parents’ choice. These programs provide access to quality educational options that low-income families would not otherwise have.
Means-preferenced programs give preference to students from low-income families by serving them first, while also allowing students from working class and middle income families to participate.
Twenty-seven of the nation’s fifty private school choice programs are either means-tested or means-preferenced.
