FINANCIAL AID

*** PLEASE NOTE: THE DEADLINE FOR ELIGIBILITY FOR THE ARCHDIOCESE FAMILY GRANT FUND IS WEDBESDAY, APRIL 15TH! ***

Even if you are not income qualified, we highly recommend that all families who could benefit from assistance complete an application with TADS (www.mytads.com). As the school receives private tuition assistant grants throughout the school year, we use the information from TADS (which allows families to submit a letter outlining extenuating financial circumstances) to help determine the distribution of those funds.

 

Please refer to the attached documents for the TADS worksheets to prepare your information before you apply. You are always welcome to contact the school office with financial aide questions. 

During this important time of year for so many Catholic school families across the archdiocese who are planning for their children's education, we ask you to please keep the many local generous benefactors and foundations who support our dynamic and diverse community in your prayers. 

Go Shamrocks!
