Again this year, there are two scholarships available to students and families. One scholarship is based upon the school district in which you live and the other is based upon household income. Both have been widely expanded this year making them available to many more students and families.
1. Traditional EdChoice Scholarship. This scholarship offers students from underperforming public schools the opportunity to attend participating private schools at no cost to the family. Please see the 2020-2021 EdChoice List of Designated Schools under Important EdChoice Links on this page to determine if your child’s assigned public school building is included. Several area schools have been added to the list including schools from Beaver Local, Crestview, East Liverpool, Lisbon, Leetonia, Salem, and Wellsville school districts.
**Please note: there has been an important change to this scholarship for students entering grades 9-12 next school year (2020-2021). This scholarship is available to students currently attending these public buildings but also for any student who would be assigned to attend these school buildings, even those students who are currently homeschooled, enrolled in an online program, or already attending a private school like ELCS.
If your child is currently attending or would be assigned to one of the schools on the EdChoice List of Designated Schools, he or she will qualify for the Traditional EdChoice Scholarship for the 2020-2021 school year.
2. EdChoice Scholarship Expansion: This is an income based scholarship that has been widely expanded to include all students entering Kindergarten through grade 12 in the 2020-2021 school year. This scholarship provides low income students, with the opportunity to attend a participating private school at no cost to the family. This scholarship is available to all Ohio, K-12 students whose families meet the income guidelines, regardless of the school they currently attend, even students who are homeschooled, enrolled in an online program, or already enrolled at a private school like ELCS. Please see the link for Federal Poverty Guidelines under Important EdChoice Links on this page to determine if your family qualifies.
