Diocesan Tuition Assistance Program 2022-23 School Year

For Families with Children in Grades K-8 Attending Catholic Schools

General Information

Tuition assistance is awarded each year to families with children in our Catholic schools in grades K-12.  Awards are made based on financial need.

How is the determination made?
Information contained in the application along with the supporting materials is used to determine financial need.  The formula utilized has been especially designed for families with children attending Catholic school. This calculation is based on a moderate standard of living for the geographic area of the applicant, further ensuring a realistic result. This formula determines the ability of a family to pay for private education. FACTS includes a comprehensive review and verification process ensuring the accuracy of the data.

Award Amount   Families who apply can receive up to one-half of the school's in-parish tuition rate.
