Kindergarten – 8th Grade Tuition Assistance

Trinity Lutheran School recognizes that choosing a parochial school is a major financial decision for any family and that tuition assistance is sometimes necessary. Applying for Tuition Assistance is a two step process. 


STEP 1: Apply to Illinois Invest in Kids Scholarship Program

The Illinois Invest in Kids Scholarship Program provides scholarships for students whose families meet the income requirements to attend qualified, non-public schools in Illinois. The application portal opens on Wednesday, January 13, 2021 at 6:30pm. The funds are available on a first-come, first-served basis, so you are encouraged to apply early to receive your time stamp. 

For more information about the process, please click on the link below. At the site, you will be able to see if you qualify, the steps to apply, and much more. Please check it out before you apply.

Please note: You will need to apply for the Illinois Invest in Kids Program before you apply for assistance with FACTS.


STEP 2: Apply to FACTS Financial Assistance 

After you have applied for the Illinois Invest in Kids Program, you can apply for assistance with FACTS. FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment is an independent, third party company that conducts financial analysis to determine your family’s financial need. Trinity Lutheran School will receive a confidential and private report outlining your financial situation based on the information you provide. This report is then reviewed by the Trinity Financial Assistance Committee for final determination of assistance. All information remains completely confidential and private throughout this process. FACTS applications for financial aid open February 1, 2021, with an application fee of $32, and the deadline to apply is May 28, 2021. Visit to apply.

Applying for either of these programs does not guarantee assistance. If you have additional questions about tuition assistance, please call the school office at (217) 787-2323.
