Diocese of Sioux City Scholarship Program


The Diocese of Sioux City Catholic Schools Scholarship program and Emmetsburg Catholic are pleased to once again provide tuition assistance to qualifying families. This program, supported by over 700 donors provides expanded opportunities to help qualifying families afford the Catholic School of their choice. Tuition assistance is available to all families whose 2017 total income meets state eligibility guidelines.

Therefore, after careful review, we have hired a new financial aid administrator out of Minneapolis, MN named TADS. We are confident about the transition and believe they will provide us the necessary service we need at the Diocese of Sioux City for our administrators, parents and many others. 

Attached are some instructions and other valuable information about TADS. Please take some time to review and contact Emmetsburg Catholic at 712-852-3464 or TADS at 1-800-477-8237 with any questions or feedback you may have.

Thank you for choosing a Catholic education for your children, it’s the most important investment a parent can make. May the peace be with you and your family in 2018 and beyond.
