Information on Tax Credit Scholarships!

Your child could attend Leo Catholic High School for FREE!

We have a large influx of students already signed up to enroll in the Tax Credit Scholarship Program (TCSP) on January 22 at 8 a.m. Please sign up now!

To register for the program you must contact our Tax Credit Scholarship Program Manager Mrs. Porter before January 15th. You can email Mrs. Porter at or call 773-224-9600.

All families must apply for the Illinois Tax Credit Scholarship before being eligible for any Leo in house financial aid. We are no longer able to offer any financial assistance without first applying to the TCSP.
