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

Tuition Assistance

Thank you for your interest in applying for tuition assistance for the 2020-2021 school year. As a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, the deadline to apply for the Archdiocese of Detroit Tuition Assistance Program has been extended to May 15. Award notification or denial information will be communicated in June.

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 2020-2021 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.
