Financial Assistance

The financial commitment and sacrifice families undertake in deciding to send their children to a Catholic school are understood and appreciated. 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.

Tuition assistance is available for families who show a real need for it.  Families may apply through FACTS for assistance available from the Archdiocese of Baltimore.  Be sure to adhere to firm deadlines.

We offer a NEW STUDENT GRANT of $500 for all NEW STUDENTS.

***  PLEASE NOTE ****  

To apply for the NEW STUDENT GRANT, you must complete the FACTS Grant and Aid application.


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 assistance granted by every school and parish as well as that granted by the Archdiocese of Baltimore is housed on the same platform. Therefore, a family need apply only once for possible support from these various sources.

More information about FACTS can be found here.
