If you have not qualified in past years, you may qualify this year with new guidelines. We highly encourage you to review available funding and apply for all potential scholarship funding. A large percentage of families are eligible to receive some scholarship through local school district tax-funded programs. If you choose to enroll in a private school you are still entitled to some of the services your school tax dollars provide.

Kathy Shrader, our school’s Director of Finance, can assist you in finding all of the scholarship discounts you are eligible for in the upcoming school year. Mrs. Shrader is a tax expert by profession and has decades of experience in financial management. We are blessed to have her on staff!  Set up a confidential, no-obligation meeting with Mrs. Shrader to have your questions answered. We want to help make tuition as affordable as possible for your family. Call the school office at 419-784-2021 to schedule a meeting with Mrs. Shrader or email school secretary Mrs. Carr at to set up an appointment to learn more.
