Tuition Assistance Program

Apply Spring 2020

The Tuition Assistance Program, coordinated through the QCES Foundation, includes scholarships based on demonstrated financial need. To ensure impartiality and sensitivity to privacy, the schools employ the FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment to compile applications for assistance and to recommend amounts to be awarded.

The same application can be used for the Quincy Catholic Elementary Schools and QND. There is a one-time non-refundable online application fee of $32 per family. FACTS accepts all major Credit Cards (Visa, Master Card, American Express, Discover).

The FACTS Application must be completed and submitted online. Paper copies cannot be completed and submitted. If you need assistance with completing the online application, please contact the Principal of the school where you wish to enroll your child(ren) and they will be happy to make arrangements for you to receive help in applying and submitting the online FACTS Application.

Depending on your application some or all of the following documents may be required:

  • Copy of your most recent IRS Federal Form 1040, 1040A or 1040-EZ U.S. Individual Income Tax Return. If applicant and co-applicant file separately, we require both tax returns for the same tax year.
  • Copies of all your most recent W-2 Wage and Tax Statements for both the applicant and co-applicant.
