The financial commitment and sacrifice families undertake in sending their children to a Catholic school is understood and appreciated. Although paying for education is, first and foremost, the responsibility of a family, each school 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.
What is grant and aid?
Tuition assistance is a need-based analysis of the cost of education vs. a family’s ability to pay and these awards do not need to be repaid. To objectively assess what a family is able to contribute to its student(s) education expenses, an independent third party (FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment) is used. The money awarded is distributed under the following priorities:
- Current recipients of Financial Aid; and
- Financial need of a family
How do I apply for grants and aid?
With the exception of Maryland State financial aid (through BOOST), all aid is based on the results of a family’s need-based analysis as determined by FACTS. Each family need only complete the FACTS application once to be considered for aid from:
- Archdiocese of Baltimore
- a family’s Catholic parish
- St. John the Evangelist School
FACTS applications must be submitted no later than February 28 prior to the fall school year start.
Financial aid is awarded by the Archdiocese of Baltimore. Archdiocesan financial aid generally comes from two funding sources: the Partners in Excellence Program and the Archdiocese of Baltimore School Fund. Grants awarded by the Archdiocese are renewed annually for the child’s entire K-12 Catholic education as long as the family is still eligible.
Financial aid is available to registered parishioners of Catholic churches in the Archdiocese of Baltimore. A financial grant may apply to each student, so a family with several children in the school, or in various Catholic schools in the Archdiocese, could receive a grant for each child. This financial aid is available for need-based families and the money for tuition assistance comes from your fellow parishioners. Need is determined by completing an online FACTS application Please contact your pastor for more information on how to apply for financial aid.
