Thanks to many generous private donors and institutions, the Rapid City Catholic School System is able to offer grants and other financial aid to students attending the school.
Applications are accepted starting in the spring of each year. The grants awarded will be applied to the following year’s tuition. Please review the financial aid available. Grants are a form of financial aid and therefore all grant applicants must show financial need through TADS.
Applications must be submitted to the business office no later than July 6, 2022.

South Dakota Partners in Education Scholarship
• The total household income the year before the student enters the program is no more than one hundred and fifty percent (150%) of the federally set amount for reduced-price meals in the National School Lunch Program.
• The student lives in South Dakota while receiving the scholarship.
Once qualified, a K-8 student will remain eligible for three years, and a high school student, until graduation. After the initial period of eligibility, a child would continue to qualify as long as family income did not exceed 200 percent of the lunch eligibility level.Learn more at
Partners in Education uses TADS to collect family applications and verify the documentation of income. To apply for this scholarship please visit TADS and select South Dakota Partners in Education as an additional school.
