SGO Reminder

All Emmaus families that do not receive a School Choice Scholarship (voucher) may apply for a Tax Credit Scholarship (SGO). The amount of the SGO will most likely be limited to $500. Details outlining how to do so are contained later in today’s Newsletter. Please be sure to review the income requirements listed on the web site. If a SGO is received this year and income does not increase significantly, the student may be eligible for a voucher for the 2022-23 school year. Please be sure to contact Mr. Martin with any questions.

Families desiring a Tax Credit Scholarship (SGO) for their student(s) should:
1. Go online to
2. Go to upper right hand menu and click on For Schools.
3. If you already have an account, enter the Sign-In information. If you do not have an account, click on Create New Account and follow the instructions.
4. Once an application has been submitted, Emmaus must verify the information and approve the application.
5. Once Emmaus has verified and approved the application, it is sent to the SGO for final review.
6. Parents must complete an additional application at FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment at to determine need.
7. Once approved by the SGO, and need determined by FACTS, the application will be marked ‘approved’ and the school will notify the parent of the amount of the award.

Second Semester Chapel Offering
Our second semester’s chapel offering is for The Hope Center. The Hope Center provides services to pregnant women in northeast Indiana from the Christian perspective. Every one of our students will receive a baby bottle in which they may bring their offering to school every Monday. You are encouraged to speak with your child concerning the importance of giving back and of the Hope Center.

2022-23 School Year Principal Update

As we reported in the newsletter before Christmas, Mr. Martin will be stepping down as principal at the end of this school year. Emmaus has a principal committee that has started the process to find a replacement. The committee met Monday, January 24 th with Dr. Kevin Brockberg. Dr. Brockberg is the Executive Counselor for Christian Education from the Indiana District Office of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. He gave us some valuable information and helpful tips to start our process. We are now working on searching the National Lutheran database to find potential candidates that would be a great addition to Emmaus. We will be meeting again Monday, January 31 st to keep the process in motion and we will continue to give you updates as we progress.
