Nevada has one private school choice program, a tax-credit scholarship.

Nevada offers K–12 students and their families several types of school choice, including a private school choice program, charter schools, magnet schools, homeschooling and inter-district public school choice via an open enrollment policy.

Nevada Educational Choice Scholarship Program

  • Nevada’s Educational Choice Scholarship allows corporations to claim a 100 percent tax credit for contributions to approved scholarship-granting organizations (SGOs), nonprofits that provide private school scholarships, counted against the Modified Business Tax. Taxpayers may carry forward a tax credit under this program for five years. The total amount of tax credits awarded statewide is $14.2 million in 2021–22. The SGOs then provide private school scholarships to families who meet the income requirements.
