29-private schools have signed up to accept scholarships and transferring students under the Alabama Accountability Act.

Abbeville Christian Academy and New Life Christian Academy in Troy are among the schools participating.

Last month, only seven private schools had signed up. The Alabama Accountability Act allows families of students in failing public schools to receive a tax credit to help pay tuition at a private school.

The tax credits have been estimated at $3,500 a year.
