*Business Office Change:

Effective October 1, 2016, all credit card transactions processed by the Business Office will incur a 3% processing fee. Thank you for your understanding as we strive to be good stewards of our resources by reducing costs where possible.

Use of Section 529 Plans for Tuition

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 contains a provision that allows the use of Section 529 savings to pay for private K-12 education up to $10,000 per year, per child starting in 2018. Establishing and funding a Section 529 plan can provide significant tax benefits. See your investment adviser and accountant for more information.

Parish/Church Tuition Credit

Families may receive a Parish/Church Tuition Credit of up to $100 per student if the family is an active, registered, contributing member of their parish/church. The family may submit the Parish/Church Tuition Credit Form which must be completed and signed by the parish pastor. The amount awarded by the parish will be applied as a tuition credit when payment is received from the parish/church. The Parish/Church Tuition Credit is not applicable to Elementary Level - Traditional and Montessori students.

Tuition Assistance

If a student qualifies for tuition assistance, the grant award is applied to the annual tuition at the start of the year and the balance is divided by ten monthly payments.

Because of generous philanthropic support from individuals and foundations, IWA provides considerable tuition assistance to students. During the 2018-2019 school year, approximately 42% of the student body received more than $875,167 in need-based tuition assistance with awards ranging from $100 to $5,000 based on the school level and documented need.
