EdChoice Scholarship Program

On July 3, 2023, Ohio Governor DeWine signed the biennial budget bill. In it, there are many provisions that affect our Catholic schools. One of these includes expanding the educational options for all Ohio families. Effective for the 2023-2024 school year, every family in Ohio will be eligible to receive some type of scholarship to attend a participating private school. 

*The scholarship amount gradually decreases as income increases.  However, there is no cut off of household income level to receive a scholarship. 

*All application forms should be scanned to or dropped off to school.

*All questions should be emailed to Dr. B. at
