Financial Aid and Scholarships

Need based financial assistance is available for families in full-time PreK through 12th grade through three programs:

                          Ohio EdChoice Scholarships

                          LCA Financial Aid

                          LEAF Scholarships

Decisions are finalized based on need and not solely on income levels. Families are encouraged to consider the application process for the programs below if there is a need for financial assistance.

In addition, LCA is a provider of the Ohio Department of Education Jon Peterson (JPSN) Special Needs Scholarship which allocates scholarships to students who are eligible to attend kindergarten through 12th grade and have an Individualized Education Program (IEP) from their district.

Once awarded, the student(s) and parent(s) must remain in good financial, conduct, and academic standing with the school as a condition of assistance being continued.

LEAF SCHOLARSHIPS

Legacy Christian Academy students may apply for a scholarship through the Legacy Education Affordability Fund (LEAF), a 501(c)3 Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO) which solely exists to collect donations and award tuition scholarships to Legacy Christian Academy students.

These scholarships are funded through the generous gifts of members of our school community through the Ohio state tax credit program. While all students at Legacy Christian Academy are eligible to apply for and receive a scholarship, awards will be prioritized for students with demonstrated financial need. Award amounts may vary.
