Support School Choice for all Ohio Families
As a decades-long champion of parental choice in education, the Catholic Conference of Ohio is urging legislators to support SB 11 (Enact the Parental Education Freedom Act) and allow every student in the state of Ohio the opportunity to receive an EdChoice Scholarship. This support adheres to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, which states, ‘As those first responsible for the education of their children, parents have the right to choose a school for them which corresponds to their own convictions. This right is fundamental’ (CCC 2229).
Let's continue to advocate for this fundamental right and to allow students of all backgrounds and income levels to attend Catholic schools. Ask your Ohio Senator to support SB 11 and uphold the family as the central social institution of society by sending the following message.
Offertory- Presentation of the Gifts

Nationwide Children’s School-Based Health Center
St. Mary School German Village has partnered with Nationwide Children’s Hospital to provide
students with the same health care services they would receive at a doctor’s office – right at
school. The Nationwide Children’s school-based health center at St. Mary School, located on
the second floor of the Burkley Center, provides additional access to health care and is open to all catholic school families and community members.
- The school-based health center at St. Mary School German Village can:
- Help when your child has a sore throat, bad cough, earache, headache
- Give shots (immunizations)
- Do blood work
- Perform checkups (well visits)
- Provide sports physicals
- Connect you with a doctor
- And more
The center is not meant to replace a child’s existing pediatrician but provide help to those
students who do not have one. Consent is required for your child to be seen.
Behavioral and mental health services will soon be available at the school-based health center. See the school counselor for more information.
