We also accept families who qualify for the School Choice Scholarship Vouchers and Tax Credit Scholarships for incoming Kindergarten students and students enrolling in first grade after attending kindergarten in public schools through the Northeast Indiana SGO .  School Choice Scholarships will cover the majority of tuition and fees for the student.  Tax Credit Scholarships are one the the approved steps in qualifying for a School Choise Scholarship.  The school principal can answer any questions regarding the School Choice and Tax Credit Scholarships.

 

The Diocese of Ft. Wayne-South Bend also offers financial assistance to families in need.  Large Family Fund scholarships are available for families in need with 3 or more children attending Catholic Schools.  Bishop Kevin Rhoades awards scholarships to a set number of students in the Diocese.  Both Diocesan scholarship opportunities have specific applications procedures.  The school will distribute the information to families when it becomes available.
