Tax Credit Scholarships
The state of Illinois has created a new way to fund scholarships for children who chose to attend private schools through the “Invest in Kids Act.” Tax credit scholarships offered through this program could cover up to 100 percent of tuition and eligible fees for the next school year at St. Bede the Venerable School. Currently, 39 St. Bede students are receiving scholarships for the ‘22-‘23 school year through the tax credit scholarships. Thanks to the Invest in Kids Act, St. Bede students have received over $800,000 in tuition assistance at St. Bede over its five-year existence.

Employer Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA)
Use tax-free dollars to help pay for qualified expenses. An FSA allows you to contribute pre-tax earnings into a special account that can be used to pay for eligible dependent care expenses. Morning/Extended care fees, summer camp, and preschool tuition are generally covered expenses under pre-tax flexible spending/dependent care accounts. FACTS reports are designed to provide the necessary information to claim these covered expenses from your plan. Please consult the terms of your employer's plan for specifics. Contact FACTS customer support at 866-441-4637 if you need assistance finding the required documentation.
