STO Scholarships: 


Cedar Valley Christian School is part of the Heart of Iowa School Tuition Organization (STO), which is a needs based scholarship program. The State legislature has approved $12.5 million in tax credits for the program this year. (Donors give to the program and receive a generous tax credit that is applied to their state taxes.) Accredited, non-public schools who are in an STO organization, are eligible for an allotment that is determined by enrollment figures. This year we are raising over $100,000 in tuition assistance for eligible CVCS families.To qualify, your family income must be no more than four times the federal poverty level for your family size.  

The 2019 federal poverty guidelines are on the back of the application.
