Tuition Assistance

Thanks to the financial commitment of the Catholic parishes of Sioux Falls, tuition for each student is made more affordable through parish subsidies. Additionally, Bishop O’Gorman Catholic Schools and its Foundation award more than $2 million annually in tuition assistance through grants and scholarships.

We want every child who desires a quality Catholic education to be able to attend Bishop O’Gorman Catholic Schools. We offer scholarships and grants to make this possible.

The financial aid application process coincides with opening enrollment each year in late February. The application deadline is April 1 annually. Families receive notification of scholarships in late May and grants in early June.
