The STO receives voluntary contributions from Iowa taxpayers and allocates those funds in tuition grants to Iowa school children who attend one of the participating schools. Households with income that does not exceed an amount equal to three times the federal poverty guideline for a family of their size would be eligible for the STO grant. Income guidelines, due dates, and applications will be available in the school office when we receive them. Please let the school office know if you would like to receive this information when it is available. We will forward it on to you. There is no application fee.
Tuition Assistance Plan (TAP) Grandview Park Baptist School holds an annual Work-A-Thon, a Community service event and fundraiser. Students secure pledges to work one day in the fall performing various tasks for the elderly and disabled persons in the greater Des Moines area. The money raised is the foundation of the Tuition Assistance Program (TAP), which enables students with financial needs to receive the quality education that Grandview Park Baptist School offers.
