TUITION ASSISTANCE FOR 2018/2019 SCHOOL YEAR

The Catholic Education Foundation, the Archdiocese of Louisville and our funding partners are helping more families than ever who cannot afford the full cost of educating their children in a Catholic elementary school.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE?

All families with one or more children enrolled in or applying to a Catholic elementary school in the Archdiocese of Louisville.

WHEN DO I APPLY?

New to this year, tuition assistance applications must be submitted between December 15, 2017 – February 28, 2018.

HOW DO I APPLY?

A single form, the FACTS management application, will be used for all forms of Catholic elementary school tuition assistance. The application is only available online.

New this year, families must submit their application, 2016 Federal tax-return, 2016 W-2’s and other non-taxable documentation along with the $25 processing fee by February 28, 2018.

DO I APPLY EVERY YEAR?

Yes, you must apply for tuition assistance each year.

WHEN WILL I KNOW IF I HAVE BEEN GRANTED TUITION ASSISTANCE?

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Completed applications received by February 28, 2018 will participate in the initial grant awards. A much smaller amount of tuition assistance may be available for forms submitted after that date.
Complete only one FACTS application for your family, including all students in the family (elementary and high school) on the same form. FACTS will send a need evaluation to all funding sources for which each family could qualify as well as the schools you have listed on the form.
