Information Meeting – January 21
Across Ohio, thousands of parents use state-funded scholarships to send their children to the school they choose. St. Peter’s Catholic School is a registered “provider school” with the State of Ohio School Choice Scholarship Program.
THERE ARE SOME IMPORTANT CHANGES AND UPDATES WITH TWO OF THE STATE FUNDED SCHOLARSHIPS.
Educational Choice Scholarship (EdChoice)
EdChoice provides scholarships to students who attend the state’s underperforming public schools. For the 2020-2021 school year, numerous schools have been newly added to the ODE designated list of underperforming schools so students assigned to those schools are eligible for the
scholarship. Prospect, Sherman, Woodland, Madison South and Mifflin elementary schools, Mansfield Middle School, and Mansfield Senior High are some of the area public schools on the ODE designated list.
Ed Choice Expansion
This scholarship is based only on family income. For the 2020-2021 school year, students in ALL grades K through 12 whose family’s income is at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines are eligible to apply. For example, last year a family of four earning $51,500 or less was eligible to
apply for the scholarship. Families currently enrolled at St. Peter’s who meet these requirements are eligible to apply.
IMPORTANT: The application period for EdChoice and EdChoice Expansion scholarships is February 1 through April. Once the admission process is complete to attend St. Peter’s School for the 2020-2021 school year, application for state scholarships can begin. The sooner that process
begins, the better.
