We believe the key to assisting children to grow into successful adults is a strong foundational K-8 education.

The CEO Challenge

What We Do and Who We Help

The Children’s Educational Opportunity Foundation of Connecticut provides equal access to K-8 accredited private schools by awarding one-half tuition up to a maximum of $2,100/year. Parents/guardians can choose the private school that best meets the needs of their child or children. Parents are responsible for the balance of the tuition.

Parents/guardians qualify if their income level is at or within 200% of the Federal Poverty Income Level for the size of their families. Residents of Bridgeport, East Hartford, Hartford, New Haven, and Waterbury, Connecticut may apply. However, CEO continues to explore opportunities to expand the number of Connecticut areas and families to serve.
