Created in 2013, the Income-Based Scholarship Program is an expansion of the EdChoice Scholarship Program that provides scholarships to students from working class families to be used toward tuition at the participating private school of their choice. The scholarship is renewable through high school graduation.
Any student entering grades K-3 whose family’s income is at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines is eligible to apply for the upcoming 2016-17 school year, unless they are eligible for the EdChoice Scholarship. Each school year, a new grade will be added. For example, incoming fourth grade students will be eligible to apply for the scholarship for the 2017-18 school year. This scholarship is based only on income and is available in any part of the state.
The Autism Scholarship Program (ASP) gives the parents of children with autism who qualify for a scholarship the choice to send the child to a special education program other than the one operated by the school district of residence to receive their education and the services outlined in the child’s individualized education program (IEP). Please note: this is for specific services and not able to be used for tuition at the Academy of St. Adalbert.
