What is Tuition Assistance?
Ste Jeanne d'Arc School Tuition Assistance Program provides financial aid to qualified families and their children who attend our school. Parents who enroll their children at our school want the academically challenging and service-oriented Catholic education. However, some families are not able to fully meet the financial obligations. Tuition assistance allows families to realize their dream of an Ste Jeanne d'Arc School education for their children.
Where does the money come from?
Tuition assistance is funded through the generosity of many donors. Ste Jeanne d'Arc School’s Memorial and Tribute Giving Program allows individuals to contribute to our tuition assistance funds in honor of a loved one or in recognition of a special event or occasion. Our Advancement Office seeks out grant opportunities to supplement our financial aid resources. Organizations such as the Sisters of Charity of Ottawa, the Catholic Schools Foundation, and the Society of St. Vincent de Paul are generous contributors to our tuition assistance funds.
How do I apply?
Ste Jeanne d’Arc School uses FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment, an outside independent company that evaluates each applicant’s financial circumstances to determine if they qualify for financial aid. FACTS makes recommendations about need and those recommendations are reviewed by school administrators to determine how much aid will be awarded. Each year, the total amount awarded depends on the amount of available funds.
How can I help fund the Tuition Assistance Program?
There are several ways you can contribute to the Tuition Assistance Program and help a child:
- Make a donation to one of the funds in our Memorial and Tribute Giving Program
- Establish a fund in memory of a loved one that provides annual funding for families in need of assistance.
- Consider us in your Estate Planning or will.
Ste Jeanne d'Arc School is a 501(c)(3) organization recognized by the IRS. All financial contributions are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
