ST. THOMAS MORE POLICY REGARDING
FINANCIAL AID APPLICATIONS
The Catholic Education Foundation (CEF) For the Archdiocese of Cincinnati student grant money is available to K-8 students for the 2021-2022 school year. The grant is need-based and available to Catholic and non-Catholic students, and cannot exceed $1,200 per student. The deadline to apply is January 31, 2021. Click here for more details and to apply.
Parish tuition aid is provided based upon the parish’s ability to do so for families who are active participating members of the parish and who meet income requirements. A FACTS Management financial aid application must be completed and submitted by April 15, 2021, as directed, with a copy of the family's 2020 federal income tax return. The aid application is then processed and a recommendation is provided by late May or early June to the parish. Families who wish to apply for aid should do so at the time of registration. Registration will not be completed until all financial arrangements have been made. Smart Tuition monthly contracts will be processed and any financial aid decision rendered will be posted as a credit prior to the first payment in July. All approvals for financial aide must be approved by the Pastor.
EdChoice Expansion or EdChoice Traditional Scholarships provide free tuition for students entering grades K-8 who meet the income requirements or currently attend an underperforming public school. Click here for more details.
