Financial Assistance

At Sioux Falls Lutheran School, we recognize that finances play an important role in your family’s educational decisions. That’s why we provide up to $150,000 in scholarship assistance to qualifying families each school year. We treat tuition assistance as an extension of our ministry and strive to eliminate financial obstacles that stand between qualified children and a quality Christian education.

How to Apply
After stopping in for a visit, you can apply for a tuition assistance scholarship through TADS, a third party financial aid assessment tool that we use to help distribute our funds. Before you begin, please take a moment to review the TADS Financial Aid Worksheet, which will help you identify the information you’ll need in order to fill out the online application.

Other Ways to Supplement Tuition
SCRIP
In order to help families who don’t qualify for needs-based assistance, Sioux Falls Lutheran School offers a School Tuition Reduction Incentive Program. Participating families purchase gift cards at face value through our school and use them, instead of cash or other cards, to make purchases. A percentage of each gift card you buy goes directly into an account for your child and is applied toward your child’s tuition.
