When applications opened Wednesday for Missouri’s new tax-credit scholarships for kindergarten through high school, some prominent names were left off the list of participating schools.

Elite prep schools John Burroughs in Ladue and Pembroke Hill in Kansas City have not partnered with any of the state’s certified Educational Assistance Organizations, religious groups chosen to collect and distribute the funds.

“The scholarships I thought were designed to help parents who wanted private school options to be able to afford it,” said Krystal Barnett, executive director of school choice advocacy group Bridge 2 Hope St. Louis. “What’s unclear is if all private schools are included.”

Under state law signed last year by Gov. Mike Parson, the MOScholars program allows residents and businesses to receive a credit of up to 50% of state tax liability for donations to the program. The groups then grant the annual scholarships of up to $6,375, prioritizing those students with special needs or from low-income families. The funds go into an app that can only be used for tuition and other qualifying expenses.

Each religious group “will, at its discretion, establish relationships with eligible schools” before students can apply. The groups each receive up to 10% of the donations to administer the program.
