We’re here to help! RCCSS offers financial assistance for families that qualify. Students entering grades K-12 are eligible to apply for aid. RCCSS has chosen Tuition Aid Data Services (St. Paul, MN) commonly referred to as TADS, to conduct financial need assessments of our families seeking tuition assistance. The application process is fair and confidential and is required for all families requesting assistance. We want to provide needs-based assistance and grants to as many of our families as we are able. Please do not hesitate to apply, even if you have never applied in the past. The application is very thorough, but not difficult to complete.
