Financial Assistance


It is our wish that families who would like to provide a St. Clare K-8 education to their children have the opportunity to do so. Tuition assistance may be available to registered families who cannot pay the full tuition cost. There are two sources for tuition aid: the Archdiocesan Education Fund and the St. Clare School Tuition Assistance program. This last source is generously funded through donations to the Annual St. Clare Benefit Auction and the Support-A-Student Program sponsored by St. Clare Parish and School. Please make an inquiry at the office (which will be kept confidential) if we can provide further information about tuition assistance.

At the time of registration, parents may begin the tuition assistance application process by submitting the necessary information to  FACTS through their website. FACTS Grants and Aid Assessment is a third party organization that determines a financial need based on confidential financial information provided by parents to this organization. Notification of tuition aid is usually provided by late May. Given available funds by the Archdiocese and St. Clare, as well as the number in need requesting aid, the finance committee will make the final determination of tuition grants. All information is kept in the strictest confidence. Anyone requesting tuition assistance must complete and submit the FACTS application by the stipulated deadline.
