Grant & Aid

It is understood and appreciated the financial commitment and sacrifice families undertake in deciding to send their children to a Catholic school. Although paying for education is first and foremost the responsibility of a family, each school, parish and the Archdiocese of Baltimore devote significant funds each year to financial aid programs that help assist families. In turn, our school communities benefit by attracting students that otherwise would not be able to attend our schools. There are four potential sources of funding to assist your family in making a Catholic education a reality. To be considered for any or all of the grants below, you must apply online through FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment which helps the Archdiocese, parish, and school in determining grant awards to new and current families. The deadline to submit an application through FACTS is February 28 for the following school year.

  • New awardees in an AOB Catholic School with great financial need
  • Previous award recipients who still demonstrate financial need and attend a non-AOB Catholic School
  • Remaining applicants in any Catholic school with demonstrated financial need

Parish Awards

  • St. John the Evangelist Parish: In order to qualify for a parish grant, the family must be an active parishioner at St. John who demonstrates financial need or has multiple children enrolled in the school, a discernible donation of time and talents in support of the parish, as well as regular attendance at Mass. In addition, the family must have completed all information in FACTS for Grant and Aid. The continuance of the award is contingent upon the continuance of active participation in the parish and payment in full of all prior year outstanding tuition. Please complete this form: Parish Tuition Grant Form 2018 and submit to Fr. Pete Literal by March 1, 2018.
  • Parishioners at other Catholic parishes in the Archdiocese of Baltimore: Contact the pastor of your parish to inquire about parish award opportunities.

School Awards
These are awarded by St. John the Evangelist School and are available for families with multiple children and are based on the number of children in a household incurring tuition expense. Additionally, school grants are available for single child families with demonstrated financial need.

FACTS

FACTS is the tuition management and grant and aid platform used by the schools in the Archdiocese of Baltimore. All families are asked to create an account with FACTS to manage their tuition payments. The grant and aid application is housed on the same platform for every school, parish, and the Archdiocese of Baltimore assistance. Therefore, a family need apply only once for possible support from these various sources.
