Scott County Catholic Schools, a coalition of Catholic elementary schools in Davenport and Bettendorf (along with Assumption High School) has announced a new Tuition Transfer Credit (TTC) program.
The new TTC program was created to give a $1,500 tuition grant (over two years) for students entering grades 1 – 8 this fall who are not currently enrolled in a Catholic school.
“We have an outstanding community inside our schools and our test scores outpace those of our peers. We don’t want tuition to be an obstacle for families whose children could benefit from a Catholic school education,” said Andy Craig, President of Assumption High School.
“There is a limited time to enroll in this program, so if this is something that interests you, please reach out to any of our schools to learn the details.”
The program helps offset financial barriers for families considering Catholic education, giving them an opportunity to experience the Catholic school difference. A similar program has been well received in Omaha and Des Moines. The Tuition Transfer Program begins immediately, and continues through the summer, or until available seats are filled. Certain restrictions apply.
A New Model for Scott County Catholic Schools
Beginning in January 2020, Catholic leaders in the Scott County, Iowa, community began the process of forming a regionalized school system to better serve K-12 students in Davenport and Bettendorf Iowa, and throughout the Iowa-Illinois Quad Cities area.
Upon completion, the regionalized schools model will lead to even greater educational and spiritual benefits to students and families including enhanced program offerings, improved efficiencies and resource sharing, common tuition rates, updated facilities, as well as competitive compensation and benefits packages for attracting and retaining top-level teachers, administrators and staff.
