Family Resources

We believe every family should have the opportunity to send their child to a quality school of their choice. One way we act on this belief is by partnering with qualified schools to offer scholarships that make private school more affordable.

Tax Credit Scholarships are funded by donations from individuals or businesses who receive tax benefits in return for their contributions. These scholarships are different from Indiana’s School Voucher program, which allows eligible families to redirect their child’s education funding from the state to be used as tuition a participating private school.


How do you know if you qualify for a tax credit scholarship?

IQE offers families a free online tool to determine if they qualify for tuition assistance. Visit myschooloptions.org to see if you qualify for a tax credit scholarship.

Indiana – Private School/Homeschool Deduction

Indiana’s Private School/Homeschool Deduction program was enacted and launched in 2011.

Indiana provides a tax deduction for individuals who make educational expenditures on behalf of their dependent children. Any taxpayer who has a child already enrolled in private school or who is homeschooled is eligible to claim up to a $1,000 tax deduction per child for approved educational expenses including private school tuition, textbooks, fees, software, tutoring and supplies.

You can find more info and the tax forms here.
