Falcon SGO Changes

  • Next year, we will use 100% of our Falcon SGO donations to assist families in need.
  • Anyone who does not receive a full EdChoice Scholarship ($6,166)…and completes a financial aid application…will be eligible to receive this scholarship.
  • The 2023 SGO donation deadline has been extended to include your tax return date (instead of the standard December 31st deadline).
  • For more info or to donate, please CLICK HERE.
  • If you already donated in 2023, be sure to check the “2024” box when completing the Google Form found at the above website. 

CYO Volunteers Needed: we could use some help coaching our boys grade 3-4 volleyball team, as well as our girls 6th grade volleyball team. If you are willing to help, please text Brian Frey at (937) 684-7087. Thank you!!

Re-enrollment remains open for returning students. If you have not yet re-enrolled and your child’s class is full, you are at risk of losing your spot.

Recruiting! We need your help filling our open seats for next year. Despite our marketing efforts to educate our local community about this year’s EdChoice changes, we still meet new families who were unaware they could use EdChoice at St. Chris.  PLEASE get on social media and let your friends know that we are accepting applications for next year’s Kindergarten, 1st, 3rd and 8th grades…and we accept EdChoice. They can email me at for a tuition estimate.
