OKLAHOMA CITY (June 22, 2018) – St. Paul’s Lutheran School (SPLS) in Enid has become the Opportunity Scholarship Fund’s 64th member school. Established in 1926, SPLS serves students through 5th grade. They are led by their principal, Lois Nichols, and a dedicated group of staff and teachers, supported by a long tradition of parental involvement. Through the years, the school has been able to provide superior educational and developmental opportunities for their students, as well as impacting their surrounding community.
St. Paul’s Lutheran School is committed to equipping their students to reach their highest potential by establishing a curriculum that meets educational standards, while providing programs that develop children’s mental, physical and social skills. St. Paul’s Lutheran School works hard to create a challenging, safe, and rewarding environment for its students.
SPLS is accredited by the Oklahoma Department of Education. We are excited to have St. Paul’s Lutheran School as OSF’s 64th member school.
About Opportunity Scholarship Fund
The Opportunity Scholarship Fund (OSF) is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization helping promote and manage the Oklahoma tax-credit scholarship program. Students qualify based on standards established by individual member school’s financial aid criteria and meet the requirements established by the Oklahoma Equal Opportunity Education Scholarship Act. According to an independent fiscal impact study in 2017, the fiscal return to the state is $1.24 of savings for every $1 of tax credit issued based on the state’s per-pupil spending on common education. When accounting for all funding sources, the fiscal return is $2.58 for every $1 of tax credit issued. Established in late 2014, OSF is the premier scholarship granting organization in Oklahoma.
