~ Children’s Scholarship It's important to let you know of a fund that may help some of our families, Children's Scholarship of Omaha.  CSF believes that all families, regardless of income should be able to choose the best educational setting for their children. The mission of CSF is to provide partial-tuition scholarships so children from low-income families can access the private or parochial K-8 education of their choice.  If you think you may qualify for assistance from CSF please see the link below that outlines the details and eligibility of the program.
