The education of a lifetime
St. John the Evangelist is committed to providing bright, motivated, curious students with an education unlike any other regardless of their ability to pay. The Archdiocese of Atlanta and St. John the Evangelist Catholic School offer several opportunities for financial aid to qualifying families based upon documented need. Families are notified by letter in April of the status of their application for aid.
ALL families applying for any scholarship or financial aid MUST complete an application through FACTS, https://online.factsmgt.com/aid, no later than Friday, February 28, 2020. There is a $35 nonrefundable application fee. FACTS requires families to provide current (2019) tax documents in order to determine financial need. If you plan to apply for tuition assistance, it is imperative that your 2019 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.
Archdiocesan Financial Aid
Active Catholic families (as verified by your family's pastor on the Parish Verification Form) are eligible to apply for financial aid from the Archdiocese of Atlanta. Financial need for assistance is determined by FACTS.
Hispanic/Latino students are eligible to apply for the Goizueta Scholarship. Financial need for assistance is determined by FACTS. Families must also complete the Goizueta Scholars application form.
To qualify, all students must be a resident of Georgia and meet one of the following criteria:
- Students who are entering Pre-K, Kindergarten, or 1st grade whose families demonstrate a financial need (as determined by FACTS), OR
- Students in Grades 2nd and above who have attended a public school for at least 1 school year whose families demonstrate a financial need (as determined by FACTS), OR
- Students in Grades 2nd and above who qualify for an exemption
Families must complete a separate application for the GRACE Scholarship in addition to the FACTS application. Please click here to access the GRACE Scholars application and more information. You may access the application in Spanish here and in Vietnamese here.
GRACE Scholars, Inc., is the official student scholarship organization (SSO) for the schools sponsored by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Atlanta. All students receiving GRACE 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.
GRACE 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 GRACE scholarships in accordance with local procedures.
