- EdChoice Scholarship Program
The Educational Choice Scholarship (EdChoice) Program provides students from underperforming public schools the opportunity to attend participating private schools. The program also provides low income students who are entering kindergarten through fourth grade the same opportunity. The program provides up to 60,000 EdChoice scholarships to eligible students.
Families who have received the EdChoice scholarship are expected to pay the difference of tuition not covered by EdChoice. The EdChoice Scholarship covers $4650. The balance of $200 is due to the school office by November 2, 2020.
Families who have received the EdChoice Scholarship are not required to pay tuition electronically. Families receiving the EdChoice Scholarship are required to come to the school during school hours to endorse tuition checks issued by the Ohio Department of Education by the deadline established by Our Lady of the Lake School. Failure to endorse checks in the school office will result in the families being required to pay the balance of the tuition owed in full.
You can find more information along with New Student and Renewal Forms on the EdChoice Website: http://education.ohio.gov/edchoice.
