Archdiocesan Family Grant and Scholarship Information

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version


For this school year, we estimate that we will be able to award just slightly less than $1,000,000 in tuition assistance to our families on an as-needed basis. We will split the amount between high school awardees and elementary awardees. This year, we awarded aid to families where income was just above the poverty level. We continue to offer assistance on an as-needed basis.

For the Elementary students, April 15th is the deadline for submitting all information to the third party need evaluation company that we use to collect the financial data from our families. High School Students have a deadline, specified by the individual schools, but not later than February 8th for submitting TADS applications to the third party need evaluation company, and Pastor form / Principal form and to their high schools directly. High Schools submit those forms to the Department of Catholic Schools by March 8.

Late applications will NOT be considered. Students must live in San Mateo, San Francisco or Marin Counties. We expect to announce the awards to high school families at the same time the acceptance letters are sent, and to elementary student’s families at the end of May. This is consistent with the process we used to award tuition assistance for this year.
