Tuition is kept low and only covers approximately 35% of our total operating expenses. We are committed to raising the other portion through donations.

 

1. We have many layers of scholarships at our school.

  • Grant-In-Aid (Affordable Tuition Scholarship): Our full tuition amount (cost of educating each student) is $4,400 per year.  However, when a family turns in proof of income, they receive a grant-in-aid reducing their payment to $2,200 per year (lower for additional siblings).
  • Sibling Discount Scholarship: Familes pay $220 for their first child, $140 for their second child and $110 for the third child per month.
  • Income-Based Scholarship: These scholarships assist lower-income parents for whom the above scholarship are not enough.
  • Hardship Scholarship: These scholarships assist parents who may have experienced a life change (loss of job, divorce, illness, etc.) that makes it difficult for them to afford full tuition payments.
  • Please contact us if you have an interest in assisting us with any of the above scholarships.


2. OSTC (Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit)

Any business that operates in PA and pays the following taxes can receive a tax credit of 90% if the business donates money toward a scholarship fund for HPCA students for two years (75% tax credit if it is one year).  The scholarship funds are specifically for children who reside in the area of a failing school, which includes most of our students. The money would have to be given directly to a scholarship agency, but can be directed toward HPCA if requested by the business.

Types of Taxes that are Eligible for OSTC:
  • Personal Income Tax
  • Capital Stock/Foreign Franchise Tax
  • Corporate Net Income Tax
  • Bank Shares Tax
  • Title Insurance & Trust Company Shares Tax
  • Insurance Premium Tax (excluding surplus lines, unauthorized, domestic/foreign marine)
  • Mutual Thrift Tax
  • Malt Beverage Tax
  • Retaliatory Fees under section 212 of the Insurance Company Law of 1921
