Tuition Assistance

We want to fulfill the desire of every family seeking the caliber of our Catholic education for their child(ren).

Along with the support of our local parishes, we offer scholarships and grants to make tuition affordable for all.

Families interested in applying for tuition assistance will have the opportunity to do so when enrollment opens annually in February. We utilize TADS for our online application process. 

All returning families need to complete the online application by the April 1 deadline. Only completed applications in GOOD status will be reviewed and considered for the first round of awarding and families will be notified of awards during the first week of June. Please note that financial aid decisions are made based on a family’s demonstrated financial need and are determined on a case-by-case basis. TADS communicates directly with families regarding the status of their application.

New families considering applying after the April 1st deadline should reach out to the Admissions Office for application information.
