Please Consider a Donation to the STO
Regina Catholic Education Center is represented by the STO (School Tuition Organization) of Southeast Iowa, along with nine other Davenport Diocesan Schools. This website includes Frequently Asked Questions. www.stoseiowa.org
 
Regina Catholic Education Center relies on these donations to the STO to help support our families who need this assistance to attend our school and receive a Catholic education. We must fill our portion of the total goal by November 30, 2020, so that Regina may receive the maximum tuition grants needed for our students. 
 
If you know of others who may be able to contribute, please help us spread the word about this important program. 
 
Thank you for your attention to this financial opportunity.
