CATHOLIC EDUCATION IS AFFORDABLE
The Diocese of Greensburg has financial assistance available to families in Catholic schools in the coming academic year through the generosity of donors contributing through the Pennsylvania Education Department Tax Credit Program.
Am I eligible?
Students are eligible for scholarships from this state-sponsored program if their household income is not more than $105,183 (for a family with one child). That eligibility requirement rises $18,514 for each additional child.
Students who live within the boundaries of a low-achieving school, as determined by the Pennsylvania Department of Education, and meet income requirements also are eligible to receive scholarships.
How do I apply?
For eligibility and application questions, visit www.catholicschoolsguide.org to arrange an in-person interview with a designated outreach and admissions coordinator.
How do I contribute to this program?
Businesses and individuals with a Pennsylvania state tax liability can participate in this program.
For information, contact Bill Barnes, Director of Special Projects, at 724-552-2589.
