For many families, a primary concern of enrolling their children in Catholic school is the cost. Although tuition may have been a barrier to Catholic education in the past, today we are blessed with a variety of opportunities to make Catholic education an available choice for all families.

The Family Tuition Plan: “Embracing Our Future” (EOF)

The Family Tuition Plan was developed to link families attending one or more of Scott County’s K-12 Catholic schools to the Embracing Our Future and the Mississippi Valley School Tuition Organization financial aid programs. The Family Tuition Plan evaluates a family’s financial status and applies aid from either funding source, whichever is most appropriate for one’s situation. All K-8 families are encouraged to apply and application is strictly confidential. Click here to submit your application. To learn more about how The Family Tuition Plan can help you, call the program coordinator, Liz Powers, at Assumption High School, 563.326.5313 ext. 228.
