Thank you for your interest in the King’s Gate Tuition Assistance Program. It is our pleasure to serve you and your children. King’s Gate has partnered with the Opportunity Scholarship Fund (OSF) in order to help assist our families. The Opportunity Scholarship Fund is a Scholarship Granting Organization that provides scholarships to Oklahoma K-12 students attending accredited private schools in our state.
The scholarship funds are voluntarily provided to individual schools by private individuals and corporate donors. The information you provide in this application will be reviewed by the King’s Gate scholarship committee and then submitted to the King’s Gate Board for approval. Once the application has been approved it will be sent to OSF.
When scholarship funds are received from OSF the checks are made payable to both King’s Gate and the scholarship applicant. Checks are endorsed by both parties and deposited with King’s Gate to use for the applicant’s scholarship.

The tuition assistance program is based on demonstrated financial need and determined according to your family’s present situation.
