Affordability

Tuition assistance is available!

St. Mary School understands that investing in a Catholic education is a substantial commitment for families.  Not every family is able to afford the full cost of tuition.  It is with this in mind that we offer limited tuition assistance.

Applying for Tuition Assistance:

Any family wishing to apply for tuition assistance must provide the complete required financial documents at the time of application.  Applications for tuition assistance must be submitted each year and according to each program’s deadlines.

How to apply:

  • FACTS tuition assistance: both returning and new families applying for consideration for FACTS tuition assistance must fill out an application online.  New families will need to create an account before applying: FACTS tuition assistance
  • BASIC fund: Families new to Catholic schools may qualify for financial assistance through BASIC Fund. BASIC fund application

All questions regarding tuition assistance can be directed to  marcee.ervin@dsj.org or 408-842-2827.
