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 2022-23 New Student Online Application process will be available for new/existing families beginning on January 10th, 2022, ending on February 18th,2022.  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 February 25th with the order of priorities listed below. If selected, the applicant will have the opportunity to go through the interview/testing process with each school principal making the final determination on acceptance to BCS.  After February 18th, completed applications will still be accepted but will only be considered after the lottery priority list has been exhausted.  Applications received after February 18th will be prioritized in the order they are received.
