EDChoice Expansion: Next Steps

All applications submitted to the school office have been processed and submitted to the State of Ohio. We are waiting for the State to approve the submissions. You may check your status by logging into your account, Income Verification and hovering over EDChoice Exp next to the student’s name. Most families who have submitted the EDChoice application will be receiving some scholarship amount. If you look at the chart, you should be able to determine the amount of your scholarship.

Many families have been receiving “Acceptance” forms from ODE. Please fill it out, sign, date and return to Patty Thomas via email or paper copy. Please note that a student will not receive more than our tuition amount, even though the Acceptance form may show a higher amount. Also, it is a lengthy process for ODE to Award these scholarships, and is usually a 4-6 week time period, especially if a family submitted applications in late August or September. If you have not received one yet, please continue to be patient.

After families have been “Accepted”, the parish office will be notified of scholarship amounts. You may continue to receive statements every month until tuition is paid in full. EdChoice checks will come monthly through next June, but if you will be receiving the full tuition scholarship, you do not need to make any payments. Monthly EdChoice checks will be made payable to both St. Ignatius School and the primary guardian. If you would like to avoid the inconvenience of coming in each month to sign these checks, you are welcome to sign the waiver and return to Patty Thomas so that we can just deposit them.¬†

Parents are welcome to go into their ODE account to check status of their students’ applications and other important information.


If you will not be receiving the EdChoice Scholarship because your child is receiving another state scholarship, (ie. Peterson, Autism, etc,) or you live outside of the state of Ohio, we highly encourage you to apply for tuition assistance. In order to do this, you must create an account and register through FACTS: FACTS log in. Even if you have applied in the past, I encourage you to do so again, as we are finding ways to disperse money to our families who are not eligible for Ed Choice this year.
