Special Needs Scholarship

The Carson Smith Special Needs Scholarships is a state-funded program that provides private school scholarships to K-12 students with disabilities. Saint John the Baptist Elementary participates in this Carson Smith Scholarship program to the extent that it can adequately meet a student’s individual needs. To qualify, a student must:

  • Be a Utah resident.
  • Apply and be accepted to Saint John the Baptist Elementary.
  • Be eligible for an IEP (Individual Education Plan) from the local school district. Carson Smith Special Needs Scholarships are not guaranteed and are subject to availability of state funds.
  • Carson Smith Special Needs Scholarship funds may not cover Saint John the Baptist Elementary’s tuition rate. Recipients of the Carson Smith Scholarship who are not capable of paying the remaining tuition balance, need to apply for tuition assistance/financial aid.
