Parents,

SCA has been blessed to have several area businesses participate in EITC (Educational Improvement Tax Credits) program this year!  They have designated funds specifically for use as scholarships for our SCA families.

What does that mean to you?
If you meet the qualifications for these funds, you could receive between 10-90% off your tuition.  Distribution will be based on need, the number of students in the school, and income.  An EITC application must be completed to be considered. Pennsylvania law requires that a third party be used to determine eligibility.   The state of Pennsylvania sets minimum guidelines and requires complete confidentiality. Only the administrator oversees the EITC program.   SCA requires all families receiving money to adhere to all school policies and procedures, support SCA sponsored fundraisers, be current with tuition payments, and present SCA in a positive light.

The 2019-2020 financial guidelines are as follows:

  • Annual household income must not exceed $85,000
  • Additional $15,608 is permitted for each child living within the household (Ex.  A family making $116,216 or less with 2 dependents may be eligible for EITC funds.)

Application Deadline is May 15, 2019

We encourage you to apply.  EITC application forms are available on line at https://online.factsmgt.com/signin/3NT2N.  Applications will be processed the first week of June. Paying for a Christian education is an important investment.  We are trying to keep our educations accessible because owe believe Christian education is valuable. We thank God for the businesses that participate in our program.  If you know of a business that would like to participate in our tax credit program, please have them contact Brandi Heintzelman at sbc3@ptd.net or call 570-473-7355 ext. 114.  Please take the time to thank and patronize these businesses for their support of Christian education at SCA:
