NEW Tax Savings for Private School Tuition!
 


Parents in Missouri can now receive a state tax deduction for private school tuition as a result of the federal tax law changes passed last month. Families can use state-sponsored 529 college savings plans to pay for expenses such as tuition for their students in kindergarten through high school.

To find out more on how the 529 plans work, tax deduction amounts and how to set up an account visit the Missouri MOST website.

Please contact your tax professional and financial advisors for personalized advice and complete details on how to take advantage of this great new perk for families with children in private schools like BTC. 


2018 We Make a Difference Campaign
Kicks Off Next Week


Each year our teachers and families rely on the support of hundreds of individuals and businesses. who make it possible for BTC School to provide a challenging technology-rich curriculum, augmented by a strong focus on Christian service.

This past year the We Make a Difference Campaign helped:

• Provide $124,000 in tuition assistance.
• Create a new MakerSpace pre-engineering lab

• Purchase 30 new computers for student use.

Our community has done an amazing job of supporting these needs while giving the gift of educational opportunity to hundreds of students and families.

As we kick off this year's We Make a Difference campaign, we ask that you continue to help us further this tradition of Catholic education and make a donation. Together we can Make a Difference in the life a child!
