Lakewood Christian School in McAlester has $132,752 worth of reasons to support the Oklahoma Equal Opportunity Education Scholarship Act.

That’s the amount of scholarships provided to the school through the Opportunity Scholarship Fund.

The Scholarship Act makes it possible for individuals or businesses to obtain Oklahoma state income tax credits through making a donation to organizations that grant scholarships, if the organization is recognized by the Oklahoma Tax Commission.

In this case, the Oklahoma Scholarship Fund uses the contributions to grant scholarships to eligible students so they can attend a private, accredited school, such as Lakewood.
