2022-2023 School Year

Lutheran Interparish School is committed to providing a quality Christian education to all students. Tuition Assistance is available to help parents send their child(ren) to L.I.S.

Tuition and fees are set by the Board of Directors each year. All families will receive a financial statement outlining required fees for the school year. Fees are expected to be paid in one payment, two payments, or in equal payments (10 monthly payments: August-May) over the course of the school year. The full amount is due by the close of the school year. (Policy 6.01).

All Kindergarten - 8th grade families are required to apply for I. L. S. T. O. funding if they qualify and complete an L.I.S. tuition assistance application if they wish to receive tuition assistance. Information about these programs are available in the school office. (Note: I.LS.T.O. funding does not subsidize Preschool tuition at this time, however 3 year old & 5 year old students may qualify for tuition assistance through an Iowa County Empowerment Grant.) The deadline for applying for assistance is April 23, 2021.
