|Information for Nonpublic Schools|
The North Carolina legislation, which creates the Opportunity Scholarship, Disabilities Grant, and Education Savings Account (the "Programs"), directs nonpublic schools which participate in any of the programs to meet several requirements.
In order to receive award payments on behalf of recipients for the 2018-19 school year, nonpublic schools must be registered with the North Carolina Division of Non-Public Education (DNPE). Once registered with DNPE, nonpublic schools should go to the SEAA K12 Programs Nonpublic School Registration page for more information about how to register with one or more K-12 programs.
Homeschools registered with DNPE do not complete the registration process required to participate in the Programs. This process is only for conventional private elementary/secondary schools already registered with DNPE.
Families with homeschools registered with DNPE cannot receive Opportunity Scholarship funds on behalf of students.
Families with homeschools registered with DNPE can apply to be considered for a Disabilities Grant and/or the Education Savings Account Programs.
