Tuition Assistance (K-8)
Catholic schools offer a wide range of tuition assistance options. Tuition assistance is available from:
Archdiocese of Louisville
Catholic Education Foundation
Last year, more than $9.7 million was given to Catholic school students who could not afford the full cost of tuition. St. Albert families received over $130,000 in aid last year from the Catholic Education Foundation, their funding partners, and St. Albert the Great. To download an assistance form and for more information, go to ceflou.org.
All tuition assistance, applications, and procedures are handled with one form, the FACTS application, that is obtained through the school office or by going to ceflou.org after January 1, 2017. Even if you have students in more than one Catholic school, you can apply for all of your children on one FACTS form. The deadline for submitting the FACTS form for the 2017-2018 school year is March 15, 2017.
FACTS Management is an independent, third-party service that provides reasonable assessments of the ability of families to pay tuition at private and parochial schools.
Copies of the FACTS 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.
