Students with exceptionalities

Students with exceptionalities are eligible to apply to the School Choice Program, which provides families with tuition assistance to attend participating schools like St. Louis Catholic that offer special needs programs.  Tuition assistance is 50% of the state per pupil funding for the student’s school district (approximately $2,500), and cannot exceed the cost of the private school tuition. Families are responsible for paying the difference if tuition exceeds that amount.
