All St. Malachy families should consider applying for CTO. This is a great organization that helps families afford Catholic School Tuition.
This year CTO is asking that families apply online www.fairapp.com
- The CTO has contracted with FAIR, Inc. to process the financial aid applications and provide an objective evaluation of each family’s financial need. FAIR is a nationally recognized leader in financial need evaluation services for Catholic and private schools.
- Applications and instructions will be made available during Catholic Schools Week in late January through schools in the Diocese. There is a $27 fee per family for processing the application. St. Malachy will pay the processing fee. Please contact Kim Coen 641-782-7125 for a fee waiver code.
- Applications for tuition assistance need to be completed online by the first Friday in April of each year for round 1. If there is still money available, applications will be accepted until July 31st.
- Families who apply will be notified of their tuition assistance awards near the middle of August.
