Tax Credit Scholarships
Through the Invest in Kids Act, the state of Illinois has created a new way to fund scholarships for children from low-income households who want to attend private schools. The tax credit scholarships (TCS) offered through this program could cover up to 100% of tuition and fees for eligible students in grades K-8.
Immaculate Conception School is an eligible private school.
Empower Illinois and Big Shoulders Fund are both Scholarship Granting Organizations (SGO). Families apply directly to SGOs to obtain a TCS.
