Families are responsible for their part of their tuition. CEO provides one-half of the annual tuition up to a maximum of $2,100 per academic year. Family contribution and participation ensures a strong commitment to the success of CEO Scholars.
Families may choose any accredited private or parochial K-8 school in Connecticut. There is a partial list of schools which currently enroll CEO Scholars on this website. CEO is happy to help families determine if their school of choice is accredited and eligible to receive CEO Scholars.
Families may transfer to another accredited private or parochial K-8 school in Connecticut. The CEO office must be notified if a transfer occurs once the student is accepted and enrolled.
CEO will continue to support children who are doing their best to engage in their education and are making academic progress. If a child is expelled from school, they will not continue to be eligible for their CEO Scholarship.
If a child needs time to meet the academic expectations for their grade level, CEO will continue to support the child between grades K-8.
Although CEO Scholars may score below grade level upon entering a private school, grade reports indicate that almost all CEO Scholars complete their grades above expected levels within their first year at their chosen private school. Most private schools are interested in helping students achieve their full potential as students and provide them the opportunity to complete their education in high school and college.
