MOST is the Only Privately Funded
School-Choice Program in the Mid-South.

By providing need-based and merit-based scholarships for qualifying students to attend private schools, MOST promotes access to school choice for all children in the Memphis area — regardless of their ZIP codes or financial circumstances.

My son received this scholarship when he was in the 7th grade and my daughter when she was in 1st grade, it was a big help for me! They are 31 and 26 now! I will always recommend this program. I was a single parent who wanted my children to attend private school and the MOST scholarship made that possible!

"In general, a great education - and the environment in which you are educated - often opens many doors to success. MOST enables hundreds of Memphis children each year to attend PK-12 schools that provide the right environment for them, so I believe hundreds more students each year are being set up for success in college."
