You Have a Choice in Your Child's Education

Choosing Holy Family Catholic Schools means choosing a school that will nourish your child – mind, body and spirit. It means ensuring your child is known and personally guided to reach his or her fullest potential in college, career and life. It means fostering a deeper faith and a lifelong call to service. 

It is with great excitement that we celebrate that Iowa's new Students First Act means Education Savings Accounts are now a reality for Iowa families beginning in the 23-24 school year and beyond!

You do not have to be Catholic to attend Holy Family Catholic Schools. Holy Family warmly welcomes families of all faith traditions and in all stages of their faith journey.

While it's true that our schools provide an education rooted in the values and teachings of the Catholic faith, families of all backgrounds are invited to take part in our promise of educational excellence.  All students take part in opportunities to strengthen their knowledge of the Catholic faith, including weekly school Mass, theology coursework and daily prayer.

Every family has unique needs and circumstances, and tuition at Holy Family is not “one-size-fits-all.” Those who apply by the first-round April 15 application deadline will be notified of their specific tuition assistance award by mid-May.

For Example:

You may be surprised to learn that up to 90 percent of your child's tuition could be paid for through tuition assistance funding, and local grants and scholarships! Families with the greatest demonstrated need could pay as little as $33/month or $400/year.

More details about tuition assistance and scholarship opportunities as well as the universal application form can be found on our tuition assistance webpage.
