State Funding Available for Iowa Families

The Students First Act, introduced by Governor Reynolds and signed into law on Jan. 24, 2023, makes state funding available to every K-12 student in Iowa. The bill establishes a framework and funding for education savings accounts, which eligible families may use to cover tuition, fees, and other qualified education expenses at accredited nonpublic schools in Iowa like Rivermont Collegiate.

Families can apply from May 31 - June 30 for the 2023-2024 school year.

“Rivermont is an excellent value for an outstanding education for our kids. We have seen how excited they are to learn and are amazed at the things they are doing for their age (Algebra in 2nd grade, Rocket Science in Kindergarten). They love school because of the outstanding teachers that keep them engaged and challenged everyday. We have been so impressed with the excellent communication and proactive, responsible handling of COVID. The close community gives them access to a very diverse group of students from around the world that enhances their educational and social development.”
