Scholarship Applications have been reopened!

We have reopened the application process for all students. If you were unable to complete an application during the first round, make sure you go out and submit an application. All students attending private schools may apply! If you believe you may qualify for a low-income scholarship but missed the deadline of the first round, or if you just switched from a public to a private school, there will likely be more corporate money to be issued. Call the office if you are having problems with your application. Thank you!

Corporate Low-Income Award Letters Are Out

Parents, the award letters have been emailed. Check your email, login to your Parent Portal and check to see if your student was awarded a Corporate Low-Income Scholarship. We have only issued Corporate Low-Income Scholarships so don’t be too concerned if your student was not awarded. We believe every qualified student received an award. Many students do not qualify for the Corporate Low-Income Scholarship, we will be working on Individual Original and Switcher Scholarships soon.

Scholarship Day!!!

We will be issuing our first round of Low-Income Corporate Scholarships today!! Once we have completed the process, we will notify the school administration to review each student’s award to verify what can be received in the current year and what will be carried over.

Parents, expect a delay! The schools will need time to process the awards. Once they finalize their part, you will receive an email notifying you of your child’s scholarship. You can also login to the Parent Portal and view the awarded money. Again, it will not show up until the school has approved the award.
