BLOCS Scholarship Information

Gwynedd-Mercy Academy Elementary participates in the pennSYLVANIA Tax Credit scholarship program

Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit (OSTC) are unique tax credit programs in Pennsylvania. They enable qualifying businesses and individuals in Pennsylvania to designate their state liability to education, and more specifically to GMA.

Our school works with Business Leaders Organized for Catholic Schools. BLOCS works within the State of Pennsylvania guidelines to raise scholarship income for qualified students attending elementary and secondary schools in Philadelphia.

For more information on how to apply for a BLOCS scholarship, go to the Business Leaders for Catholic Education website.

GMA is so grateful for the increased participation and dollars directed through the EITC/OSTC programs. These funds play a key role in helping our students achieve their educational dreams!
