Catholic schools remain accessible by offering a wide range of tuition assistance options.
Tuition assistance is available from:
- Archdiocese of Louisville
- Catholic Education Foundation
- Catholic high schools
Last year, more than $8.3 million was given to Catholic school students. All tuition assistance, applications, and procedures are handled through the Private School Aid Service (PSAS) with one form that is obtained through your school. Even if you have students in more than one Catholic school, you can apply for all of your children on one PSAS form. The deadline for submitting the PSAS form for the 2013-2014 school year is March 15, 2012.
The Private School Aid Service is an independent, third-party service that provides reasonable assessments of the ability of families to pay tuition at private and parochial schools. For more information about PSAS, go to psas.org.
Copies of the PSAS analysis and forms are shared only with the contracting parish, school or agency; no one else will receive this information. Final decisions about tuition assistance will be communicated to you from your school or from the Catholic Education Foundation.
Parish membership is not required in order to receive tuition assistance.
