Sources of Financial Assistance

When a family with financial need has the desire of sending its child(ren) to Catholic school, and a willingness to participate in a school and parish life is present, there are several forms of financial aid available:

St. Joseph Elementary School Tuition Assistance

SJES tuition assistance is administered from the SJES business office and the funds come from the school’s own sources including gifts, donations, and fundraising efforts. The 1st round of tuition assistance grants is processed in April and awarded in June, prior to the upcoming school year. Applications are available online through FACTs Grant & Aid (

Please contact the school office with any questions you may have. Although most of the budgeted assistance is granted in April, we encourage families that encounter financial difficulties during the school year to contact the SJES office.

Should a family transfer to a school outside of the Diocesan system, future payments are forfeited. Families never receive a direct cash payment from FACE, BASIC Fund and/or other scholarship/grant programs.
