EITC/OSTC Programs



Individuals and businesses have the opportunity to redirect their PA state taxes to Seton LaSalle Catholic High School through the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) and the OSTC (Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit (OSTC) programs.

Participants can receive up to a 90% tax credit on contributions to the program.  For example, a $5,000 contribution would result in a tax refund of $4,500, resulting in an out-of-pocket cost of $500 for a $5,000 donation! 

These programs are the most effective way that Pennsylvania companies and residents can leverage a gift to Seton LaSalle Catholic High School. The money from EITC & OSTC contributions enables us to offer tuition assistance for those students who otherwise would not be able to afford a Catholic education.  Each year, nearly 70% of Seton LaSalle students receive some sort of financial aid, and there is always a shortfall of aid available to families.

Marielle"Seton LaSalle provided me with a family-like, welcoming environment with great faculty who mentored me. It allowed me not only to be challenged academically as a student but also to grow spiritually as a person. At Seton LaSalle, the smaller class size and intimate environment allowed me to know everyone, grow together, be inspired, and be myself. I made lifelong friends that I'll never forget. None of that would have been possible without the tuition assistance provided by the school through generous individuals I will never know. I am forever grateful."

Timothy"The opportunities I had at Seton LaSalle pushed me to reach higher than I ever imagined. The size and structure of the class provided extra attention and more discipline in my life. Seton LaSalle gave me access to many resources and was a community that had my best interests at heart.
Seton LaSalle would not have been an option for me without the tuition assistance provided by many generous donors. In my mind applying to an Ivy League school just wasn't a possibility - thanks to encouragement from Seton LaSalle, I'm so glad that I did."
