EdChoice Expansion Scholarship

The EdChoice Expansion Scholarship is available to families whose incomes fall below 200% of the poverty level. Families who meet this income requirement may apply for any children grades K-6 in their household.

To apply, students must first be accepted to Sts. Peter & Paul Catholic School.

After acceptance, parents/guardians will complete an EdChoice application, provide the child's birth certificate, proof of income (four paystubs or W-2s from the previous year) and proof of residence. Once the state awards the scholarships, checks will be sent throughout the school year to the school in the parents' name.  Parents must sign the checks and turn over to the school for tuition.  

 Families whose tuition is higher than the allotted scholarship may apply for additional tuition assistance; however, in the case of the Expansion scholarships, families are not responsible for the difference between the scholarship and the tuition balance, but will be asked to provide additional volunteer hours to help out at school.

Jon Peterson Special Needs Scholarship

The Jon Peterson Special Needs Scholarship Program is designed to allow students who require specially designed instruction to attend private schools. In the past, it has been difficult for special needs students to attend private schools because of the lack of funding for special services.  This scholarship provides funding needed to pay for speech/language services, autism services, intervention, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and social/emotional services.  Aide services may also be provided.

To apply, students must first be accepted to Sts. Peter & Paul Catholic School.

After acceptance, parents/guardians will complete a Jon Peterson Scholarship application, provide the child's birth certificate, ETR, IEP, and proof of residence. Once the state awards the scholarships, the school will be responsible for determining the cost of the services provided and if any of the scholarship may be applied to tuition.  The school will bill the state directly for all services.  The only costs which parents may incur would come from tuition; however, tuition may be paid utilizing these funds in most cases.
