Our diocese is commited to helping families across Northeast Ohio find a learning environment that supports student growth with tuition funding offered by the state of Ohio through the Cleveland Scholarship and the Ed Choice scholarship program. 


Ohio’s Catholic bishops urge immediate action on EdChoice program

The Catholic Conference of Ohio, the second-oldest state bishops’ conference in the country, issued a statement this week calling for state legislators to resume negotiations to finalize the EdChoice Scholarship Program for the 2020/2021 school year. The current delay means more than 30,000 students statewide already participating in the scholarship program are unable to apply for renewal at a time when critical decisions on school enrollment, teachers’ contracts and budgets must be made. Every day the program’s future remains in limbo makes the situation more difficult for everyone.
