Financial Assistance

 

We, as a school and parish, continue to seek ways of ensuring that the blessings of a quality Catholic education are accessible to everyone. 

If you are in need of financial assistance for the 2019 - 2020 school year, please read the following information regarding our financial aid options and deadlines.

  • General School Assistance through FACTS:

    • The school offers a tuition assistance program open to all families. The application must be submitted online to FACTS by Monday, April 15, 2019. To apply, simply log in to the RenWeb account of the family member who is listed as being financially responsible (this should be the person who completed the enrollment/reenrollment and set up the FACTS tuition draft). Once logged in, choose FACTS from the menu options on the left side of the screen. You will then choose "Apply for Grant and Aid". You will be redirected to the FACTS website and will need to follow the instructions there for completing the application. You should already have a FACTS account that you created for your tuition draft so use those same log in credentials. You will need the following documents to complete the application process:

      • copies of your most recent Federal tax forms including all supporting tax schedules (preferably 2018 tax documents)

      • copies of your 2018 W-2 forms

      • copies of supporting documentation for social security income, welfare, child support, food stamps, workers' compensation, and TANF.

 

  • Diocese of Charleston's Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Tuition Assistance Grant:

    • This tuition assistance grant is for Catholic families in good standing with their parishes. The application, along with a completed FACTS financial aid application (see instructions above for completing the form through RenWeb/FACTS), is due to the school by Monday, March 25, 2019. The application lists the due date as March 29, 2019. However, that is the date that the applications are due to the Diocese of Charleston and since they require your pastor's signature as well as the signature of Principal Yarnall, we need to receive them in time to obtain signatures and mail to Charleston. Please note that the application will not be accepted by the Diocese of Charleston unless you have completed the online FACTS financial aid application as well.

 

  • Exceptional SC Scholarship:

    • Through tuition tax credits and scholarships, Exceptional SC helps students with special needs attend credentialed private schools. To be eligible for the scholarship or tuition tax credit from Exceptional SC, you must have one of the documents listed below to prove eligibility. The eligibility/reevaluation determination date on the document must be within the past three years.

      • Individualized Education Plan (IEP)

      • Individualized Service Plan (ISP)
