Financial Assistance

  • Parish Life Scholarship

This scholarship is available to those families who are registered at Our Lady of the Lake Parish or another Catholic Church and who regularly participate in the life of the Parish, including regular attendance at Mass as determined in the Parish’s discretion and as evidenced by the use of offertory envelopes, regardless of whether a donation is made.

  • 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 $220 is due to the school office by November 1, 2019.

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.

Tuition Payment Method

Our Lady of the Lake School uses a third party tuition collection company – FACTS (online.factsmgt.com/signin/4HKBQ).  All families are required to have tuition payments electronically withdrawn from bank accounts designated by them.  Payments will be electronically withdrawn from family designated accounts and deposited electronically into the Our Lady of the Lake account.  Families have a choice of a two month, four month, ten-month or twelve-month payment plan for the 2019-2020 academic year.  Families currently enrolled in FACTS will automatically be re-enrolled unless the school office is notified.

Families may pay tuition in full by August 23, 2019.  If payment in full is made by August 23, families need not establish accounts for electronic withdrawal, and they will receive a $100.00 per family tuition discount. Strict adherence to the August 23 deadline will be observed.
