The Choice Scholarship Program (Voucher) at ISI

The Indiana Choice Scholarship (Voucher) Program provides a partial tuition payment for eligible families who enroll at private schools. The voucher amount is based on your household size and income and the school district in which you reside. Estimated vouchers for ISI students can range from approximately $6,000 to $7,300 per student per school year. 

In 2023, Indiana expanded eligibility for the Choice Scholarship Program, meaning an estimated 97% of students in the state are now eligible to receive vouchers to attend private schools. 

The International School of Indiana’s Upper School (grades 6-12) is currently a Choice Participating School, and in 2024-2025, ISI will expand participation to the Lower School*, so Kindergarten through Grade 12 students are eligible for participation in the Indiana Choice Scholarship (Voucher) Program for the 2024-2025 academic year. 

Determining Eligibility

Eligibility requirements are set and verified by the State of Indiana. To be eligible for participation in the Indiana Choice Scholarship Program, the student must have legal settlement in Indiana and meet income eligibility guidelines* based on a family's 2023 federal tax returns (1040).

To get an estimate of your voucher award amount, please view the Estimated Award Amounts Document. The estimated voucher award amount is dependent on the school district where the student resides.

Household size and income are typically found on your federal tax returns, but the information below can help clarify what constitutes these items:

Income 
  • For most families, income is defined as the adjusted gross income from your federal tax returns. However, for voucher purposes, the household income includes all income coming into the household, such as income from a self-owned business, child support payments received, social security, etc. 
Household size 
  • Children of divorced or separated parents are generally part of the household that has custody. When joint custody has been awarded, the child is considered part of the household where he/she resides for the majority of the year.
  • Children who are in college can be considered part of the household even if they are living at school.

Steps for utilizing the Indiana Choice Scholarship Program at ISI

Current Families
  • Ensure you have paid your tuition deposit to confirm enrollment for the 2024-2025 school year.
  • For families currently receiving financial aid awards from ISI, you do not need to apply for Choice. The School manages your Choice application through your financial aid process, and your overall total award will only change if the voucher amount exceeds your current aid award. 
  • Qualifying families, not currently receiving financial aid, should complete the ISI Choice Scholarship Eligibility Form no later than August 16; however, they are encouraged to complete the form by May 31 so that their tuition bill reflects the Choice award and modified tuition obligation.
  • If you would like to be considered for ISI need-based tuition assistance in addition to a voucher, follow the financial aid guidelines.
New Families
  • Apply for admission and enroll at ISI for the 2024-2025 School Year.
  • Upon acceptance, if you qualify for the Indiana Choice Scholarship Program, complete the ISI Choice Scholarship Eligibility Form with an upload of your 2023 federal tax returns (1040).
  • If you would like to be considered for ISI need-based tuition assistance in addition to a voucher, apply for need-based tuition assistance through Clarity.
