Tuition Assistance

St. Catherine of Siena Catholic School strives to provide appropriate assistance to families that want to provide a quality Catholic education to their children.

Tuition assistance applications are available each year from November to February for the upcoming school year. Assistance awards are communicated in early April. There is a period for appeals or new applications for assistance during April. New families that apply for admission to St. Catherine's after April may apply for tuition assistance by contacting the admissions director.

Tuition assistance is available to Catholic families. Awards are based on calculated need and the funds available to the school through the Archdiocese and other generous benefactors.

The deadline for tuition assistance application for the 2019-2020 school year was March 1, 2019. Families in need of tuition assistance after this application deadline should contact the Principal.
