The Alabama Opportunity Scholarship Fund believes that parents know the best way to help their children find success. We believe that every child is unique and that every child learns differently. Most will thrive in their assigned neighborhood school. However, there are some children who will need a different learning environment to reach his or her potential. It's about giving children the tools to help them succeed. Sometimes that means attending another public school in a different neighborhood or a private school.
AOSF was created to empower low-income parents to choose what is best for their child.
