Application for 2016-2017 EITC Scholarship: 2016-2017 EITC Scholarship Application – PDF

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 10-50% off your tuition.  Distribution will be based on need, the number of students in the school, and income.  An EITC application must be completed and returned with a copy of your current Federal Income Tax Return (IRS form 1040, 1040A or 1040EZ).  This information is kept confidential.  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 financial guidelines are as follows:

  • Annual household income must not exceed $75,000
  • Additional $15,000 is permitted for each child living within the household (Ex.  A family making $90,000 or less with 3 dependents may be eligible for EITC funds.)

We encourage you to apply.  EITC application forms are available in the school office or on line.  Applications will be processed after enrollment is complete. We know with the economy as it is, paying for a Christian education can be difficult. We are trying to keep our educations affordable because owe believe Christian education is important. 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 Brenda Boughner at bboughner@sunburychristianacademy.org or call 570-473-7592.  Please take the time to thank and patronize these businesses for their support of Christian education at SCA:
