Following the example of Jesus Christ in His service to those in need, the foundation assists faith-based and private schools in providing quality, affordable, and accessible educational opportunities for any economically disadvantaged family within the Saint Louis Region by generating financial assistance in the form of scholarships from local and national funding sources.
The TTEF provides need-based scholarships to families. One application is used for all of the available scholarships. For example, Alive in Christ and Beyond Sunday use the same application. Availability is limited and is awarded on a first-come basis. Families seeking yearly financial assistance should apply for a TTEF scholarship first, before seeking additional funding from HCA.
Eligible students are on an approved IEP or learning plan and/or are income-eligible and transferring from a public/charter school or entering Kindergarten or 1st grade.
