Grant & Aid

We understand and appreciate the financial commitment and sacrifice that families undertake in deciding to send their children to a Catholic school. Although paying for education is first and foremost the responsibility of a family, each school, parish and the Archdiocese of Baltimore devote significant funds each year to financial aid programs that help assist families. In turn, our school communities benefit by attracting students that otherwise would not be able to attend our schools. 

Financial Assistance is available through the Archdiocese of Baltimore, School of the Incarnation, and some parishes.  Families interested in applying for tuition assistance from any of these sources must complete a financial aid application through FACTS, our tuition payment service. Visit FACTS for more information and to access the Grant and Aid application which opens each fall for the following year.  The deadline to apply for assistance is February 28th for aid from the Archdiocese of Baltimore and March 31st  for aid from School of the Incarnation. Parents may submit an aid application prior to receiving an offer of acceptance; however, financial aid decisions will not be available until late spring.

Please contact the Business Manager, Caroline Agresti at 410-519-2285 ext. 2102 for more information or follow the below link under FACTS to complete your application online.


FACTS is the tuition management and grant and aid platform used by the schools in the Archdiocese of Baltimore. All families are asked to create an account with FACTS to manage their tuition payments. The grant and aid application is housed on the same platform for every school, parish, and the Archdiocese of Baltimore assistance. Therefore, a family need apply only once for possible support from these various sources. More information about FACTS can be found here.
