School Choice: Gov. Ducey recently signed HB 2853 into law, opening the Empowerment Scholarship Account (ESA) to all children in the state of Arizona and giving families the freedom to choose the schooling option that works best for them. The financial impact that the ESA will have on all families cannot be understated. Please help us support school choice by praying, and do not sign any petition from Save Our Schools (SOS). We have until September 24th to deter SOS from collecting enough signatures; otherwise, they will force this law to be postponed until the 2024 ballots. For details, visit the Academy website at:
