There will be catalogues and flyers sent home with your eldest enrolled student for your family. It is important to wait to order books until Oct 23rd and to use the school code, SAINTTERESA23, at checkout. For more information, please contact our Librarian, Mrs. Teslow, at email@example.com
Student Tuition Organization
Please Help Spread the Word - Our Faith STO is a great value for Iowa Taxpayers and our Schools!
With the establishment of Educational Savings Accounts (ESA), many have asked if this signals the end of Student Tuition Organizations (STO’s) and Iowa’s 75% tax credits?
The answer is “NO”, and in fact, the STO has a huge role to play in the future of Catholic education.
Here are a few important facts to consider:
1) Our Faith STO served more students in the current 2023-24 school year than in any other year, even with the ESA’s.
2) $5.6 million in tuition assistance helped 3133 students attend the school of their choice this year. This represents more than 36% of the enrollment at our Archdiocesan schools and St. Paul’s in Waverly.
3) When we hit our fundraising goal this year, $6.38 million in tuition assistance will be available for the 2024-25 school term.
4) St. Teresa of Calcutta School received $120,000 in tuition assistance for families this school year.
You are invited to the Archdiocesan Parenting Conference!
