The Educational Choice Scholarship Program (EdChoice) annually provides opportunities for eligible students in grades K-12 to apply for the Income-based EdChoice Expansion program. This is for those whose family income is at or below 250% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines.

Once your child has been accepted at Kingsway, we will submit your child's EdChoice application through the online secure application system.

All new first-time EdChoice-Expansion applicants must have their income verified by the Office of Nonpublic Educational Options unless the applicant is eligible based on the sibling criteria. When applying for an EdChoice-Expansion scholarship as a new applicant, the total household gross income must be at or below 250% of the Federal Poverty guidelines (see chart above). Income verification is required for any applicant who would like to be considered for low-income status. Scholarship families with a total gross household income at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty guidelines qualify for low-income status. This means that the private school cannot charge these families for any tuition that is not covered by the scholarship. Scholarship families with a total gross income at 201% or higher, per the Federal Poverty guidelines, are responsible for paying any tuition difference not covered by the scholarship
Our number one goal is to build a relationship with you and your family and make quality Christian education available to you. We offer several Tuition Assistance options. Schedule a meeting with the Admissions Director today to discuss what options will work best for your family.
Our Ministry-Based Philosophy of Tuition Assistance is built on a Biblically-based sustainable financial model that provides for the ongoing expansion and improvement of the educational services we offer.
- We will seek to attract and integrate students from diverse socio-economic backgrounds.
- To the greatest extent possible, any child from a motivated family will not be denied admission solely because of lack of financial resources to pay our tuition.
- Our tuition is based on the full cost to educate each child as well as enabling us to better accomplish our educational mission into the future.
- Tuition assistance for families is needs based on a case by case basis; utilizing FACTS, an objective, confidential, verified third-party financial aid needs assessment process.
- We will offer tuition assistance and award it in a manner that will allow as many families as possible to have the opportunity to attend Kingsway.
- Tuition assistance will be funded through donor gifts, not through increased tuition.
