FACTS Payment Plans
All tuition invoicing and payments are processed through FACTS Tuition Management Company. You can access FACTS online at online.factsmgt.com/signin/3FDS3.

New Families: In July, you will receive an email and letter from FACTS with instructions on how to set up your tuition payment account online and select your payment schedule.

Wisconsin Tax Deductions
Beginning on January 1, 2014, the State of Wisconsin created an income tax deduction for elementary and secondary school tuition expenses. Taxpayers are able to claim their paid private and religious school tuition expenses of up to $4,000 for each dependent child in K-8 grade and up to $10,000 for each dependent child in grades 9-12.
Scrip is a gift card fundraising program. Regis Catholic Schools buys gift certificates from local and national retailers at a discount and then sells them to you at face value. The profits are split 50-50 between you and Regis Catholic Schools. Many families budget their groceries, gas, clothing, dining, gifts and travel with Scrip cards.
- For Example: Regis Catholic Schools buys $100 Kwik Trip gas cards for $90. RCS sells you that $100 Kwik Trip gas card for $100. $5 will be credited to your Regis Catholic Schools family fee and $5 will go to Regis Catholic Schools. You can also reduce your tuition with this program.
