CHOICE SCHOLARSHIP UPDATE. BIG NEWS!

Queen of Angels Families,


As you may have heard in recent state news, the Indiana legislature approved a new budget which included changes to the Indiana School Choice program. These changes significantly increased household income limits which determine eligibility for Indiana School Choice scholarships (sometimes referred to as vouchers). This increase will allow many more Indiana families to benefit from the School Choice program. Click here for the new income limits by household size for the 2021-2022 school year. Income in most cases will be the adjusted gross income (AGI) from the 2020 federal tax return for ALL members of your household who filed a return.

In order for a student to be eligible for a School Choice scholarship, not only must the household income be below the limit for the household size, but the student must also have a “track” or “pathway” into the program. Here is a summary of the pathways available to a Queen of Angels student:

  • Previous Choice – students who have had a School Choice scholarship in any prior school year
  • Previous SGO – students who received an SGO for the current school year or any prior year
  • Sibling – students who have a sibling who currently or in any prior year had a School Choice Scholarship or an SGO
  • Special Education – students who currently have an IEP/ISP and receive special education services including Speech
  • Foster Child – students who are in foster care
  • Public School – students who have spent the previous 2 semesters in a public school

If your family’s income falls within the limits for your household size AND your student has one of the pathways listed, please submit an application through FACTS Grant & Aid here.

If your family’s income falls within the limits for your household size BUT your student does NOT have a pathway, your student(s) may qualify for a $500 SGO for the 2021-2022 school year, which will provide a pathway into School Choice for future school years. Please apply for an SGO through FACTS Grant & Aid here.

IMPORTANT

Due to the high volume of applications anticipated, it is imperative that all families wanting to apply for tuition assistance of any kind complete the FACTS Grant & Aid application by JUNE 11.

If you have any questions regarding School Choice or SGOs, please contact me in the school office at 260-483-8214 and speak with Christy Etter, Administrative Assistant.
