STO and Non-STO Scholarship Opportunities
STO Scholarships: Isaac Newton Christian Academy is part of the Heart of Iowa School Tuition Organization (STO), which is a needs based scholarship program. The State legislature has approved $12 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 $123,960.00 in tuition assistance for eligible Academy families.
To qualify, you must be below three times the poverty level as determined by the Legislature.

Non-STO Financial Aid: Available for families that do not qualify for an STO scholarship but may need financial assistance to help with rising tuition. (If you qualify for an STO Scholarship you are not eligible for additional financial aid.) We use a company called FACTS, which provides an aid assessment service. You must be enrolled for the next school year to apply for a scholarship. Pre-K does not qualify.
