THE GAME HAS CHANGED
Finances should never get in the way of excellent Christian education. We are thrilled to announce that, now more than ever, a Lakewood Park education is within reach for most families in Northeast Indiana.
Recent amendments in the law have made 97% of Hoosier families eligible for the Indiana Choice Scholarship Program. If you are considering enrolling a new student, this could mean a significant reduction in your tuition for the coming academic year – at least $5,700 for residents of Allen County and $6,000 for Dekalb County.*

NO MORE “TRACKS”
Great news! The old ‘track’ rule for School Choice is gone. Before, kindergarten students or new students from non-public schools had limited access because they needed a ‘track’ to School Choice. Now, that’s all changed. Any student in grades K-12 who fits the income requirements can get an Indiana Choice Scholarship, no extra hoops to jump through. Indiana residency is required.
WHAT IF MY FAMILY QUALIFIED LAST YEAR?
This means no change for you unless your household income increased in the past year to surpass the newly expanded thresholds, as these new changes broaden the range of families eligible for the program. Just plan to go through the same process as last year, working with our financial team. We’re excited to expand our tuition programs and are working hard to get more scholarships to families.
MY FAMILY WAS NOT PREVIOUSLY ELIGIBLE BUT NOW WE ARE.
We recommend all our families familiarize themselves with the updated requirements for Indiana Choice Scholarships, as there has been a significant rise in the income limit. Please be aware that household income refers to the Adjusted Gross Income and encompasses all income streams for every household member. To apply for a scholarship, follow the steps outlined below:
HOW DO I APPLY?
STEP 1 Make sure you officially enroll at Lakewood Park.
STEP 2 Please contact our financial aid team at financialaid@lakewoodpark.
Limited funds are available for those who qualify to supplement what is not covered under School Choice. Our financial aid team will meet with you to determine your eligibility.
THE PATH TO AFFORDABLE CHRISTIAN EDUCATION IS CLEAR.
At Lakewood Park Christian School, we firmly believe that every family should have access to exceptional Christian education at Lakewood Park, regardless of their financial situation. Our involvement in the School Choice program underscores our dedication to helping families secure the financial aid they need to choose a partnership with us.
