South Dakota Partners in Education (SDPE) is a Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO) that offers financial assistance to South Dakota families, empowering them to choose the educational opportunity that is best for their child.
SDPE exists to support South Dakota families in paying for their tuition at private schools in communities across South Dakota. Through partnerships with a growing network of over 45 schools around the state, SDPE provides income-eligible families of all backgrounds with financial support to attend the school of their choice.
At the heart of our mission is a simple belief: Parents deserve the opportunity to direct their child’s education. Education is not a one-size-fits-all endeavor. Each child learns in different and unique ways, and South Dakota benefits when children can thrive in their ideal learning environment.
Empowering families with the right and responsibility of choosing their child’s school strengthens their involvement in their child’s education. As a parent, when you’ve made the choice, you are determined to make it succeed. South Dakota Partners in Education tax-credit scholarships provide support for income-eligible families to make that choice in spite of the cost.
To accomplish our mission, we empower, engage, and enrich educational choice through dynamic partnerships.
