  • IMPORTANT NOTICE.  This notice is for families who live in the Cincinnati Public School, St. Bernard/Elmwood Place, Mt. Healthy or North College Hill School districts who are not already in the EDChoice or Jon Peterson programs.  The State of Ohio recently made changes to the EdChoice Scholarship Program and families who live in one of the four school districts previously mentioned are eligible to receive $6,000 towards tuition at Roger Bacon.  An email and letter were sent to families we have identified who live in those districts with information how to apply for this scholarship.  This is a great opportunity and we strongly encourage all eligible families to apply and take advantage of this program.  We are on summer hours (see above and below) and are closed the last two weeks of July, so it is important that you act quickly to complete and return the necessary paperwork to us.  The deadline is Thursday, July 11th at noon.  If you live in one of the four districts mentioned above and did not receive an email or letter from our Business Office, please contact the main office at 641-1300.
