EdChoice Scholarship Program


Badin High School is now a provider for the Ohio Educational Choice Scholarship (EdChoice) Program. The State of Ohio provides a limited number of state-funded scholarships to students who attend public schools that have been designated as low-performing. These scholarships may be used to attend private schools such as Badin, with eligibility being limited to:

  1. Students who are currently attending a public school designated as low-performing.
  2. Students currently enrolled in a public school who would be assigned to attend one of the public schools designated as low-performing in the upcoming school year.

Students assigned to a low-performing public school who are currently attending a private school with an EdChoice voucher can apply to transfer the voucher to Badin High School. Students currently attending a private school without a voucher and/or home-schooled are not eligible.

Students who are interested in attending Badin must first be accepted for the next school year. Once accepted to Badin High School, students interested in applying for an EdChoice Scholarship must submit the following to the Badin Admissions Office:

Those families interested in applying for low income priority must complete the Income Verification Form and submit it directly to the Ohio Department of Education by April 30.

Your student’s EdChoice application will be considered complete once all the above have been received. Badin High School will then submit your student’s information to the Ohio Department of Education through the secure web-based EdChoice Scholarship application system. The Ohio Department of Education determines qualification and will notify parents if a Scholarship is to be awarded.

The list of EdChoice-designated public schools, forms and additional details are available through the Ohio Department of Education directly at 877-644-6338 or on their website http://EdChoice.ohio.gov
