Tuition Assistance

Our Faith, Our Children, Our Future 

The Our Faith, Our Children, Our Future, School Tuition Organization, or STO, is Cedar Valley Catholic School's primary source of tuition assistance. It provides grants for qualified students to attend non-public schools within the Archdiocese of Dubuque.


The STO receives voluntary cash contributions from Iowa taxpayers and allocates those funds to tuition grants for families based on their identified financial need. Beginning in January, families can complete an application for the new school year, which is confidentially reviewed by FACTS, and grants are announced in May.  The application deadline for tuition assistance is April 15, 2021.


Over half of our families receive tuition assistance through the Archdiocese's STO program. STO grants are available for K-12 students who reside in Iowa and whose household's adjusted gross income is at or below 400% of the federal poverty rate. STO grants are not available for preschool students
