The Educational Choice Scholarship (EdChoice) Program provides state funded scholarships to K-12 students who meet the eligibility criteria. The scholarship must be used to attend private schools that meet requirements for program participation.
The EdChoice Scholarship amount is currently $6165 for grades K-8 and $8407 for grades 9-12. EdChoice will pay either the scholarship amount or the private school's actual tuition amount, whichever is less.
Scholarships are income based and the new qualifying criteria for a full scholarship increased from 250% of Federal Poverty Level (FPL) to 450%.

Partnership 4 Success
Partnerships 4 Success assists Catholic families in finding part-time jobs as a way to pay or offset tuition costs. This program was launched in 2006 by a group of local Catholic educators, business people, and religious representatives. It is for all Catholic grade schools and high schools. One of the most important decisions a parent can make is where they send their children to school. Not only is a solid academic program the key to financial independence, but outside of family life, a child’s school experience typically has the most impact on their faith and morals. If you have any questions about the Partnership 4 Success program, please contact George Molinsky at (937) 433-1188, ext. 213.
Sr. John Maureen, SC School Tuition Fund
This fund was established in 1971 to honor the memory of Sister John Maureen McGraw, a Sister of Charity and a beloved principal of our school. Its purpose is to ensure that financial hardship does not prevent parish children from enjoying a Catholic grade school education. Since its inception, more than 500 families have benefited from this fund.
This scholarship is primarily funded by our parish tithing program and private donations and is, therefore, available only to the children of parishioners.
Families must reapply each year for this scholarship; renewal is not automatic. Families must be registered, active members of St. Albert the Great parish.
The school registration fee is not included in the scholarship; the family is responsible for this fee.
