Scholarship Program Goals

The Agassiz Baldwin Community (ABC) is committed to providing accessible, high quality children’s programs. We strongly value a diverse population of children and families and strive to maintain an environment that reflects economic, racial and cultural diversity. To help achieve this end, we have funds allocated for scholarships for Sacramento Street Preschool, ABC Kindergarten Afterschool, ABC 1st-5th Afterschool, and Outback Summer Program. Agassiz Baldwin Scholarships are intended for families who are not eligible for a state childcare voucher, but still demonstrate a need for childcare. For details on voucher eligibility, please visit the Child Care Choices of Boston website at www.ChildCareChoicesofBoston.org or call (617) 542-5437.


  • Recipients of our scholarship awards often receive public assistance (WIC, food stamps, Section 8 housing, free or reduced lunch).
  • We take into account gross monthly income, family size, and personal hardship.
  • Due to limited scholarship award funding, families must commit to regular attendance. Children are expected to attend at least 80% of their scheduled enrollment.

We are committed to providing open communication and encourage you to contact Registration for guidance if you have any questions or concerns about your eligibility.

Application Requirements:

  • Scholarship Application Form
  • 1040 Tax Form
  • 2 Pay Stubs
  • Optional Scholarship Documents can be submitted with the application to demonstrate eligibility.

Please note, families must reapply for scholarships for each new program.

How Scholarships are Funded  The amount of money available for scholarships will be determined by the board at Agassiz Baldwin Community. Additional grant money is also raised to expand scholarships and for special scholarship programs.

Vouchers & Other Assistance  ABC Children’s Programs accepts vouchers distributed through Child Care Choices of Boston for eligible families. Please call the Child Care Choices of Boston at 617.542.KIDS (5437). Scholarship applicants who meet voucher income eligibility should first apply for a voucher, since they usually pay a higher percentage of tuition than ABC scholarships. Many churches, organizations and work places, including universities, also have scholarship programs. We urge all scholarship applicants to pursue these programs if available to them.
