Kindergarten Information Night

1/31/19 7 PM- 8 PM

St. Dominic Room in the St. Catherine Siena Center

Come meet and listen to Mr. Sattler and Dr. Bloomquist, principals from Most Blessed Sacrament and Regina Coeli Schools.  They will discuss Kindergarten screening, Ed Choice and other scholarships, curriculum, registration and much more.
Due to the recent publication of underperforming Ohio public schools, many of our current families may be able to choose a private school for their child to attend Kindergarten rather than their assigned public school.  EdChoice has two programs that offer funds that can cover the cost of tuition at a Catholic School.  The first is traditional EdChoice which funds those who live in underperforming school districts like Larchmont, Whittier, DeVeaux, Old Orchard, Ottawa River, Riverside (total list link below).  The second is the EdChoice expansion which funds families who have limited income (similar to the Early Childhood Grants we have).  The first step is to register at a participating Catholic School and they will guide you  through the process. Come to the Kindergarten information night if you are interested in Blessed Sacrament and Regina Coeli K-8 schools. This topic will be discussed.  

The first application period begins February 1 and ends April 30, 2019
