Many families need and receive financial assistance for Catholic school tuition. For 2017-2018, we distributed more than $460,000 in scholarship funds. The Diocese of Lansing Scholarship program is a need-based assistance program. Need is determined by an independent, third party service, F.A.C.T.S., which makes its assessment based on income and tax information. However, the FACTS application does have a section that offers the family to list any changes in their financial situation, and these may be taken into consideration.
Other types of scholarships and grants also are available, depending on the school or parish. Families are urged to meet with the tuition advisor of the school in which they intend to enroll so that all avenues to financial assistance can be explored.
Holy Rosary, where the Son always Shines!
