2020-2021 Tuition Assistance Program

 

A Catholic education for your child  may mean financial sacrifice for your family.   So let us help. Following is a list of grants and scholarships for which most of our families are eligible.  These grants and scholarships will cover a portion or possibly the entire cost of your child’s tuition. These monies have been set aside specifically to assist with paying for tuition. 

St. Joseph Parish School wants all children to have the gift of a Catholic education, so we are here to help you find the financial means to make it doable.
