School Types & Scholarships
Mississippi has three scholarship programs that allow state tax dollars to follow students with special needs to a private school or to a different public school.
- The Education Scholarship Account is a flexible spending account that gives families access to tax dollars to pay for private tuition, therapy, tutoring, and other educational expenses. Students with an active Individualized Education Program (IEP) in the past three years are eligible to apply. Find out more here.
- The Dyslexia Therapy Scholarship is for students with a dyslexia diagnosis to attend a public school in another district or to attend one of six private schools with a dyslexia program. Find out more here.
- The Speech-Language Therapy Scholarship is for students in K-6 with an eligibility ruling of speech-language impairment to attend one of two schools with a speech-language program. Find out more here.
