Choice Scholarship Voucher Information
Indiana’s Choice Scholarship (voucher) program (authorized under IC 20-51-1 and IC 20-51-4) gives Hoosier families the opportunity to send their children to a school that best meets their learning needs. A Choice Scholarship (voucher) is a state payment that qualifying families can use to offset tuition costs at participating schools. Students qualify based on total household income and 7 different possible pathways. The amount of the scholarship corresponds with the public school corporation in which the student lives. It is important to note that the Choice Scholarship typically ranges from $2,000 to $6,000 and therefore will not cover the entire cost it takes to educate a high school student.
Lutheran High School has participated in and accepted the Indiana Choice Scholarship since the 2011-2012 school year, providing all children with the opportunity for a quality education.
