Archdiocesan Tuition Assistance Programs

The Archdiocese of Washington works hard to keep Catholic education as affordable as possible.  The Archdiocesan Tuition Assistance Program is available for students in grades PreK-12 who are applying to or currently enrolled in Catholic Schools within the Archdiocese of Washington.

All tuition assistance obtained through the archdiocese is based on financial need.  Families must apply each year to receive assistance and need must be demonstrated each year to qualify. Applying for tuition aid has no bearing on whether a student is admitted to a school. 

Each family applying for tuition assistance from the Archdiocese of Washington and/or Holy Cross School is required to complete a TADS Financial Aid form. 

To apply for tuition assistance from the Archdiocese of Washington for the 2018-2019 school year, please scroll to the bottom of this screen and click TADS Financial Aid Application.  The deadline date to apply for Archdiocesan tuition assistance for the 2018 – 2019 school year is Friday, December 1, 2017. 

We also welcome the Financial Assistance for Catholic Education, Inc.  FACE provides financial assistance for single and widowed parents who show a financial need and have children attending a Catholic elementary school in the United States.  Click on the TADS link to begin the Archdiocese of Washington application.  You will later be directed to FACE’s supplemental application.  You must apply for the Archdiocese of Washington's financial aid in order to apply for aid from FACE.  For more information:  http://www.catholicfa.org/
