Through the “Invest in Kids Act,” Illinois children from low-income families who choose to attend private schools, such as St. Walter Catholic School, will have access to new scholarships. The scholarships offered through this program have the potential to cover up to 100 percent of tuition and eligible fees for low income students in grades K-12 for the 2018/19 school year.
Scholarships are awarded on a first come, first serve basis, so it is very important to apply early. Tax Credit Scholarships are need based and do not take academic performance into consideration. And, students already receiving scholarships from other school programs are still encouraged to apply for a tax credit scholarship.
