FAMILY TUITION PLAN
This plan, provided through a partnership between the Embracing Our Future campaign and the Mississippi Valley STO, provides assistance to more than 30% of current Assumption students. It is particularly helpful to low and middle income families with tuition expense at both the elementary and high school levels. We encourage families who are interested in Catholic education but are struggling with economic barriers to file a Family Tuition Plan application, which are available online as well as from the Assumption Business Office. Please submit the application, along with a copy of your 2012 Iowa 1040 Tax Form before September 30. Unsure of which tax forms to send in with your application? See an example here. For a more detailed explanation of the Family Tuition Plan, please view our explanation video.
