Tuition Assistance

The EdChoice Scholarship Program

The EdChoice Scholarship Program is offered by the State of Ohio. This program assists thousands of families with state-funded scholarships to private schools. It is comprised of two different parts.

  1. The primary part of this scholarship program is offered to all NEW, incoming students in grades Kindergarten through eighth grade that are currently attending a failing Dayton Public School. The family must live in Dayton. This scholarship is NOT income based. It pays $4650 per year, which covers the total St Helen tuition.

  2. The second part is called The EdChoice Expansion Scholarship. This is offered to all current and incoming students in select grades. The family can live in Dayton or any surrounding city, but must meet income requirements.
     

We strongly encourage ALL new families applying for this scholarship program to submit the income verification form at the same time, and to do so as soon as possible.
