Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) and Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit (OSTC)

Your business can directly impact the education of a child. Shady Side Academy partners with the Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) and Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit (OSTC) to provide financial aid scholarships for qualifying students. Our goal is to provide equal access to academic excellence for children in our region. Every year, the number of academically talented students applying for financial aid increases and continues to exceed available funds. Even with more than $3.2 million in financial aid awarded in 2017-2018, the Academy was not able to meet the full need of all qualified students. Corporate support, through EITC and OSTC donations, is essential to achieving this goal.
