Tuition Assistance & Scholarships - Detroit Catholic Schools Tuition Assistance & Scholarships

Tuition Assistance

Through the generosity of donors to the Stewards for Tomorrow Campaign, an endowment fund was created which provides tuition assistance grants to our Catholic families. Each year, awards will be made to offset the K-12 tuition expenses for children of Catholic families who both reside within the Archdiocese of Detroit AND whose children attend Catholic schools located within the boundaries of the Archdiocese of Detroit.

The FACTS application, Parent Information Sheet and Pastor’s Signature form are available below. The Parent Information Document details the process, deadline dates and other essential information. It is important to read this document in its entirety before you apply for tuition assistance.

If you have any further questions regarding tuition assistance please contact your school’s tuition assistance coordinator.

Dear Parents,

Due to the extension of the 2020 income tax filing deadline, our 2021-22 Round 1 Tuition Assistance application deadline will be extended to Friday, May 21, 2021. The Round 2 application deadline will remain as June 30, 2021.
