How much better to get wisdom than gold,
to get insight rather than silver! ~ Proverbs 16:16


There are very few things in life that can never be taken away, will never go out of style, and that truly make you a better person. An education is one of those things. At Rockford Lutheran School we understand this and want to help make private education a reality. Tuition assistance is available on the basis of demonstrated need. If you believe that your resources are not sufficient to meet the total costs of a Rockford Lutheran education, you are encouraged to apply.

FACTS  provides a framework through which household need can be measured fairly and equitably. Recommendations from FACTS are used by the Rockford Lutheran School award committee in accordance with its policies to determine the award amount. FACTS is a service that works with families and schools to create successful educational opportunities.  Applications for tuition assistance may be completed online at School Code: 39380 The $40.00 processing fee is made payable to FACTS. Failure to pay the processing fee may delay the evaluation.

Need help completing your application? Help for parents is available by phone or email on the FACTS website.  Or you can contact Teresa Maras, 815-877-9551 x137 ( or Ashley Larson, 815-877-9551 x135 (
