EITC Program at OLP

Jul 09, 2014 | Posted in News

The decision on where to send your child for school can be quite unnerving for some parents. What school has the most experience, produces the most successful students, will accommodate my child's needs and of course, which one can my family afford are some of the questions that a parent may ask themselves.

In 2001, by an overwhelming bipartisan majority, Pennsylvania made history by becoming the first state to pass an education tax credit aimed at corporations. This tax credit program, EITC, allows businesses to allocate certain tax dollars to provide scholarships for our youth to attend their school of choice. This powerful movement continues to grow at OLP and we are so proud to offer $128,231 for students PreK-8th grade. This program provided an average scholarship of $1,206 to 145 elementary students and $500 to 8 preschool students.
