EdChoice Expansion Scholarship is an income-based program. It provides ALL students in grades K-8 the opportunity to attend a private school at no or a reduced cost. Scholarships for EdChoice Expansion are awarded based on the Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) of a family’s household. If a family’s household income is at or below 450 percent of the Federal Poverty Level, they will be awarded the maximum scholarship amount and will not owe tuition at St. Thomas More School. If a family’s household income is at or above 451 percent of the Federal Poverty Level, the student’s scholarship award will be prorated. See income guidelines below. For questions about EdChoice please contact Mrs. Marsha Barnes at 513-753-2540.
