Indiana Choice Scholarship (Voucher): 

Indiana Choice Scholarships were established in the 2011-2012 school year. This state funding, commonly called a “voucher” allows Hoosier families to choose an accredited school for their child to attend. The voucher pays a portion of the child’s tuition, an amount that is dependent on family income, household size, location of residence, and other discounts that the family may receive. To find out more information regarding School Choice (vouchers) please visit If you feel you would qualify please email a copy of the first page of your tax return paperwork to


SEC (Scholarships for Education Choice) Tax Credit Scholarships

Bethesda Christian Schools has a partnership with the Sagamore Institute, a state recognized Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO). Sagamore manages donations from businesses or individuals that donate to the scholarship fund in order to help many Indiana students attend an eligible private school. In addition to the donor giving to the SGO fund, they receive a 50% state tax credit for their donation.  Scholarships are limited to the amount of funds available in our account. To apply to the Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO; Sagamore Institute) please visit
