How to Apply

Tuition Assistance (TADS)

Tuition assistance is available on the basis of demonstrated need. If you believe that your resources are not sufficient to meet the total costs of a Saint Joseph Catholic School education, you are encouraged to apply.

Tuition Aid Data Services (TADS) provides a framework through which household need can be measured fairly and equitably. Recommendations from TADS are used by the Pastor and Principal, as well as the school’s finance committee to determine the award amount. Final awards notices will be mailed the first week of May by the principal.


Applications for tuition assistance may be completed online at There is a fee for TADS application. Failure to pay the processing fee may delay the evaluation.

The following supporting documentation must be submitted to <TADS> via mail or fax prior to the application due date of April 15.

  • Household members' most recently completed federal tax forms (personal and businesses owned)
  • W-2's from each job held by household members
  • Most recent pay stub from each job held by household members
  • Documents that establish the amount of miscellaneous monthly or yearly income you currently receive (i.e., welfare, food stamps, unemployment, workers’ compensation, etc.,)
