Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit Program

The Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit Program (OSTCP) was created pursuant to Act 85 of 2012 (72 P.S. § 1701-G.1, et seq) and amended by Act 86 of 2016 (24 P.S, § 2001-B, et seq). This program enables eligible students residing within the boundaries of a low-achieving school to apply for a scholarship to attend another public or nonpublic school. A low-achieving school is defined as a public elementary or secondary school within this Commonwealth that ranked in the lowest 15% of its designation based on the combined Mathematics/Algebra I and Reading/Literature scores on the PASA, PSSA, and Keystone Exams for the 2017-2018 school year.
