Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credits (EITC), Pre-K Scholarship Tax Credit (PKTC), & Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit (OSTC)
Individuals and businesses who pay Pennsylvania State taxes can redirect their tax dollars to Holy Child School at Rosemont through the EITC/OSTC Program for the benefit of our students who qualify for financial need. Since 2003, over 65 businesses and individuals have donated more than $5.4 million in financial, need-based tuition assistance. As a direct result, more than 120 Holy Child students have received a Holy Child education, when they wouldn’t have otherwise.
How does it work?
When an individual or business agrees to make a two-year commitment, they are eligible to receive a tax credit of 90% of their total contribution. (The tax credit for a one-year commitment is 75%.)
Who is eligible to participate?
Businesses who pay taxes to the State of Pennsylvania; and
Individuals who have a Pennsylvania tax liability of $7,000 or more are eligible.

“I was first introduced to the concept of school choice during an eighth grade class trip to Harrisburg to ‘lobby’ for school vouchers. Over the years, school choice has become an issue for which we’ve come to care deeply. The PA EITC and OSTC programs provide life-changing opportunities for student participants and add vibrancy to the Holy Child community from which all of us can benefit.”
