Tuition

We are honored that you would consider investing in your child’s future through an education at Assumption School. We understand the weight of this decision and the value of this investment. There are financial aid and scholarship programs available and we will work with you to apply for these sources of assistance should you qualify.  Please see below for more information.
 

Tuition Assistance

Tuition Assistance is available to all qualified students and their families through need-based grants offered by FACE (Family Aid to Catholic Education, a diocesean tuition assistance program), the BASIC Fund, and Assumption School Tuition Assistance Program. Assumption School uses FACTS Grant and Aid, an outside organization to process the financial information provided by families. Submitting the FACTS Grant and Aid forms allows families to be considered for both FACE and the Assumption School Tuition Assistance Program. The BASIC Fund has a separate application.  

The following is a list of tuition assistance grants and scholarship programs available  for the upcoming school year.  Please read this information carefully to determine which financial aid program(s) will meet your need.  Be sure to follow the application process completely as well as submitting your application and supporting documentation by the deadline dates.
 
The FACTS Grant and Aid application is used for both the FACE Grant and the Assumption School Assistance.  Processing Fee:  $45.00.
