Tuition Assistance

Through the continued generosity of many donors, Holy Trinity Catholic Schools is able to offer tuition assistance for families that qualify.  Many of our families are also eligible to apply for a scholarship from the SD Partners in Education.  If you are interested in sending or continuing to send your children to our school, but are concerned about your ability to pay tuition, please consider applying for financial aid. Tuition assistance is available for students in kindergarten through 5th grade. Parents are encouraged to meet all deadline dates.

We use a tuition assistance service called TADS (Tested & Designed by Schools).  This is the service being used by the SD Partners in Education so that parents can apply for both HTCS Tuition Assistance and SD PiE scholarships in the same application.

If you need help with the online TADS application, please call the school office.  We are willing to help families complete the application and have Spanish interpreters available.

All tuition assistance applications are completed online:
