What are EITC and OSTC?

If you or your business pay Pennsylvania state taxes, you can turn your tax burden into tuition aid for eligible OMC families using the Educational Improvement Tax Credits (EITC) and Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credits (OSTC) programs.

Individuals and businesses who make a one-year commitment to give are eligible for a 75% PA tax credit while those who make a two-year commitment can receive a 90% state tax credit.

OMC is proud to partner with the Foundation for Catholic Education (FCE) and Business Leadership Organized for Catholic Schools (BLOCS) to help provide our families with a faith-based education. Both organizations have invested in the education of thousands of children throughout the Philadelphia area and helped provide them a high-quality Catholic education that prepares them to become leaders in their communities.

OMC takes great pride in the diversity of our school community. Your participation in EITC and OSTC ensures that OMC’s unmatched Catholic education remains accessible to all our families regardless of their socioeconomic background.
