School Choice (Voucher)

Blackhawk Christian School participates in the School Choice program for the State of Indiana that is commonly known as the voucher program for grades K-12. This program provides scholarships (vouchers) to eligible K-12 students by utilizing a portion of the state funds allocated for that child to follow them to the non-public school of their choice.

The 2023-24 New Student Online Application process will be available for new/existing families beginning on February 1, 2023, ending on February 28, 2023.  If the number of qualified applicants exceeds the number of slots available at a given grade level, a “random selection” lottery will be held on March 15, 2023 for applications received by February 28, 2023 with the order of priorities listed below.
