December 21, 2019

The State of Ohio has announced that all families not enrolled at HCCS who live in the Defiance City School District can attend Kindergarten – Fifth grade tuition-free next school year through the Ed-Choice Scholarship.

There is no financial need required to apply for this scholarship. The only requirement is that the student must apply for the scholarship and must show proof that they live in the Defiance City School District.  This is a huge opportunity for all Defiance School District families! This scholarship is for new students only, enrolling in grades Kindergarten-Fifth grade for the 2020/21 school year. Students who will be entering Kindergarten in the 2020-21 school year who attend PreK or Young 5’s at HCCS are also eligible. Once a student applies for the scholarship, they will receive it for every year that they attend HCCS.

The application period will begin February 1, 2020. This grant is not guaranteed to last beyond next school year, and the scholarship is available on a first come, first serve basis! For more information on the Ed Choice Scholarship, go to
