East Liverpool Christian School is a participating EdChoice school. This means that students eligible for EdChoice Scholarships through the State of Ohio can attend ELCS with tuition costs covered by the State of Ohio if awarded with a scholarship. Once awarded and if eligibility guidelines continue to be met, the scholarship follows the child all through schooling until graduation. The first window opens for new EdChoice applications and renewal applications for the 2019-2020 school year between February 1 and April 30. Once the first window to apply closes, it will not re-open until the summer of 2019. The second application window briefly opens between July 1 and July 31, however, early applications submitted in the spring are best.
There are two EdChoice Scholarships available for the 2019-2020 school year:
I. EdChoice Scholarship: This Scholarship provided by the State of Ohio offers students from underperforming public schools the opportunity to attend participating private schools at no cost to the family. The scholarship completely covers the cost of tuition for students who qualify and the scholarship is renewed each school year, following the student and covering tuition costs, until he or she graduates. For the 2019-2020 school year, La Croft Elementary School in East Liverpool is on the designated school list. Students in grades K-4 attending La Croft Elementary or living within the area that would be assigned to La Croft Elementary, automatically qualify for the EdChoice Scholarship.
II. EdChoice Scholarship Expansion: This scholarship is an income based scholarship that provides low income students, entering Kindergarten through Grade 6, with the opportunity to attend a participating private school at no cost to the family. For all East Liverpool, K-6 students who qualify, the state of Ohio covers the private school tuition costs. If eligibility guidelines continue to be met, this scholarship is also renewed each school year, covering tuition, until the child graduates.
