K8 Tuition Assistance

For the sake of your family’s security and peace of mind, and for the general financial stability of our school, we encourage parents or guardians to contact the pastor or the principal as soon as possible if and when they are experiencing economic difficulties. If economic difficulties arise after scholarship deadlines pass, or during the middle of the school year, families should not hesitate to inform the principal or pastor of their needs. Circumstances will be reviewed by the pastor and principal, and we will make the opportunity to apply for financial aid available to you.

If you are interested in applying for financial assistance for the 2024-2025 school year, this email is for you!


On January 22, 2024, the application for 2024-2025 Scholarships from the Archdiocesan Today & Tomorrow Education Fund will open at 8:00 am. The application will close on February 28, 2024. 


There is one universal application for a variety of scholarship programs available. To be considered for these programs, all families must apply between January 22, 2024, and February 28, 2024.

We are pleased to announce that the Missouri State Treasurer’s Office has approved the Today & Tomorrow Educational Foundation (TTEF) as an Educational Assistance Organization (EAO) for the K-12 Missouri Empowerment Scholarship Accounts Program, MOScholars.
TTEF is pre-screening families who may be eligible to receive a MOScholars scholarship. Please click here to learn about your possible eligibility for this program: MO Scholars ESA Scholarship Pre-qualification Survey.
Some families will require additional financial support above and beyond what is awarded from TTEF. ICD Parish & School sets aside $100,000.00 for tuition assistance. This assistance is ONLY available to those families who are registered parishioners of Immaculate Conception Dardenne Catholic Church AND who are on the Contributing Family Tuition Track.
Families wishing to be considered for this additional tuition support must first apply for assistance from TTEF and then will need to complete an additional application for aid through FACTS. This application, opening on April 1st, can be found at https://online.factsmgt.com/signin/3FJ81, and can be accessed using your existing FACTS online account information or by creating a new online profile.
Any funds awarded through ICD Parish & School Tuition Assistance will be automatically credited to your FACTS Tuition Management account.
