Illinois Tax Credit Scholarship Program

The Illinois Invest in Kids Act, passed by the Illinois state legislature, was designed to create a more equitable formula for school funding. Through the program, scholarships are awarded to families with income-eligible households who choose to enroll their children at private schools including Our Lady of Tepeyac High School. Funding for the scholarships is generated through a provision that allows individuals and corporations to donate to Scholarship Granting Organizations (SGOs) in return for a 75% credit against their state taxes. Be sure to designate that your gift support students at Our Lady of Tepeyac High School. Visit the Illinois Invest in Kids website.
