529 Plan Savings Information

Historically, the Missouri 529 Plan (MOST) has allowed people to save for college tax-free, while also receiving a state tax deduction annually for monies invested in the MOST program. A MOST 529 tuition savings plan is an investment account sponsored by the State of Missouri.  Up to $16,000 ($8,000 for single filers) in contributions are deductible from Missouri taxes every year and investments in the plan grow tax-free.  When you use MOST funds for eligible expenses (tuition, room and board, and other college or vocational school expenses), you pay no taxes on the disbursement. 

The MOST 529 program allows families to save and use funds in their accounts for elementary and secondary tuition expenses, up to $10,000 per year per student.

You can download letters from the MO Catholic Conference and the MO State Treasurer explaining more about the changes to the program:

Need-Based Aid

We strive to assist families for whom the cost of independent school tuition is the only barrier to attendance. We consider multiple factors in determining aid, including family financial need, mission fit, and academic performance. Applying for financial assistance is a 30-60 minute process with the user-friendly FACTS financial aid platform. All recipients must complete a financial aid application for each school year. To determine financial aid award amounts, FACTS considers family assets, income, liabilities, and debts. 

Prospective families must apply for Financial Aid by February 11. Current families must apply for Financial Aid by February 29.

APPLYING FOR NEED-BASED AID 

To start the process, go to www.factsmgt.com or log into your Facts tuition account and you will see the financial aid portal on the top right side of your home page. The application takes about 30-60 minutes to complete. You will need to provide the following for both parents, if applicable, to submit the application:

  • 2022 Federal Tax return

  • 2023 W-2 as soon as available but no later than February 11, 2024.   

If the parents are divorced and both are responsible for tuition payment, both parents must apply separately. In a case where the custodial parent has remarried, the financial situation of the stepparent will also be taken into account and they must be listed as a co-applicant because the award is based on total household income.
