Student Tuition Organization

Next Wednesday is the LAST day to apply for STO. All documents need to be in on or before July 15, 2020. Please make sure that you click on the Archdiocese of Dubuque in your application. We found in the first round that a few families did not receive tuition assistance until after this was selected. If you need further assistance, due to the constrains of the Student Tuition Organization, please fill out the request for local tuition assistance and return it to the Ossian office by August 1, 2020. Please email me at if you have any questions.
