QUALIFYING FOR ASSISTANCE
How can I qualify for a scholarship? To get a Star Achievers Scholarship you must submit a DCPS lunch form, be found eligible BY DCPS for free or reduced lunch and then you may receive a scholarship on October 17th. The amount is not guaranteed and will be based on how many students enroll in aftercare and how many families apply for scholarships. Typically, you will receive 10% reduction of tuition for free lunch recipients and 5% for reduced lunch recipients.
