Dear Catholic School Parents,
We are pleased to announce an improved process for parents wishing to apply for Diocesan financial tuition assistance for the 2017-2018 school year. We have partnered with FACTS Management Company to provide our families a streamlined and customized method to handle financial aid awards. This company serves 9,000 schools, 2 million families throughout the country, including many Catholic dioceses in Texas and in our nation.
With this new implementation, we ask that all families, wishing to apply for Diocesan financial tuition assistance for the 2017-2018 school year, complete the required documents provided by FACTS. This process will enable families “most in need” to receive tuition assistance for a Catholic education.
Application for Diocesan financial tuition assistance can be made online using the FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment Service. The application is user friendly and the average time spent applying is 22 minutes. If you need help with online computer access, please contact us. There is a $30 application fee which is paid by the applicant. One application covers students in multiple schools. All applications must be submitted to FACTS no later than April 24, 2017 to be eligible for tuition assistance.
FACTS’s standing in the Catholic school community is well known. They serve schools and families in more than 160 dioceses. Their commitment to the highest level of privacy and security were foremost in our discovery process. Ease of use and convenience for our families were also important factors in our consideration. While the Grant & Aid program will help us in collecting and analyzing the data, the Diocesan Tuition Assistance Cabinet will make the final decision in awarding aid to our families for “diocesan based awards”. Each school will make the final decision in awarding aid to our families for “school based awards.” "School based awards" must be coordinated through each school.
Some of the valuable features you’ll experience include:
Our continued commitment that a quality Catholic education be accessible by all is certainly helped and supported by funds from the Diocesan Catholic School Financial Tuition Assistance program.
Yours in Catholic Education,
Dr. Rosemary J. Henry
Superintendent of Catholic Schools
