Diocesan of Cleveland Tuition Assistance from the Office of Catholic Education
Diocesan tuition assistance is available to families in need financially with children in kindergarten through grade 12 attending Catholic elementary and high schools within the Diocese of Cleveland.
To be considered, families must fill out a FACTS Financial Aid Application. An independent company called FACTS does an objective evaluation of a family’s financial profile for the Diocese of Cleveland. The FACTS Application form is submitted directly to FACTS for evaluation. If you need help completing the FACTS form, contact FACTS Parent support: 866-441-4637 .
By completing a FACTS form, you are automatically considered by the Diocese of Cleveland for their tuition assistance program funded by the Catholic Education Endowment Trust (CEET). The deadline for the first round, where the majority of available aid is granted, is March 15. Notification of these awards is expected by mid-May. There is a second round with a deadline of June 1 and notification is by mid-July. These notifications come directly from the Diocese of Cleveland.
Depending on family needs and the diocesan funds available, grants usually range from $200-$1000 for elementary school or $400-$1500 for high school. Special scholarships with separate criteria are also available and can be discussed with the principal.
Note that you must also fill out the FACTS form to be evaluated for the Bishop’s Scholarship for Excellence, Cathedral Latin Scholarship, and the M. Thomas Moore Scholarship.
Financial Aid awards may be renewed annually. To qualify for renewal, a new FACTS form must be completed each year and demonstrate continued financial need.
