Tuition Assistance

                                                            ALL families applying for any scholarship or financial aid MUST complete an application through FACTS,, no later than Thursday, February 28, 2019.  There is a $35 nonrefundable application fee.  FACTS requires families to provide current tax documents in order to determine financial need.  If you plan to apply for tuition assistance, it is imperative that your 2018 taxes are prepared early as ALL portions of the form must be completed by February 28th to be given priority consideration.  NO decision can be made regarding partial applications.

G.R.A.C.E. Scholars, Inc., is the official student scholarship organization (SSO) for the schools sponsored by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Atlanta. All students receiving G.R.A.C.E. Awards have demonstrated financial need as determined by a third-party analysis of a family's ability to pay tuition. 

Schools in the Archdiocese of Atlanta reserve the right to decline funding from SSOs that do not award scholarships based on financial need. In addition, the maximum amount of SSO scholarships awarded to students in the Archdiocesan schools is the lowest of the following: student's calculated financial need; 80% of the tuition rate applicable to the student; an index of per-pupil public school spending in Georgia; and the maximum cap established by the local school. 

G.R.A.C.E. Scholars, Inc. welcomes the transfer of funding from one SSO to another as allowed by state law. In these instances, the school reserves the right to award G.R.A.C.E. scholarships in accordance with local procedures.
