How It Works
The parent or guardian of an interested student should please call 724-552-2565 or visit www.catholicschoolsguide.org to arrange an in-person interview with the designated outreach and admissions coordinator to begin the process of applying for the Saint Pope John Paul II Tuition Opportunity Partnership.
The family must then demonstrate a financial need and express a willingness to provide some financial contribution to the cost of the education and agree to support the child’s academic progress. This will include the completion of the FACTS Grant and Aid application so that alternative sources of funding, such as EITC assistance, may be used for tuition assistance as well. However, the parent/guardian does not have to qualify for low income assistance to be eligible for participation in the partnership.
The student must demonstrate evidence of academic commitment and an enthusiasm for learning as well as a willingness to participate in at least one activity at the student’s local parish or faith community.
The family, along with the student, must demonstrate their commitment to the school as well as to their parish or denominational church through the donation of time, talent or treasure as able. They should earn recognition as valued servant leaders.
The family must be registered members, or be willing to become members, of a parish or other local church community.
