2021-2022 Tuition Assistance Program
GOING LIVE!

The application will go live on Monday, Feb. 1st, 2021
and the Priority Application Deadline for QCES families to complete and submit their application for tuition assistance for the 2021-2022 school year will be Wednesday, March 31st. FACTS Applications for QCES tuition assistance will be accepted after the Wednesday, March 31st Priority Deadline, but the longer people wait to apply, the less tuition assistance may be available to be awarded to families applying after the Wednesday, March 31st Priority Application Deadline.

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 the 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.

2021-2022 Newcomer’s Application Packet

The QCES Foundation Newcomer’s Scholarship is a partially need-based full-tuition scholarship that will be awarded annually to one student in Grades K-8, either Catholic or non-Catholic, whose family does not currently have any children enrolled in one of Quincy’s four Catholic elementary schools. It is non-renewable beyond the first year the student receives the scholarship. However, a QCES Foundation Newcomer’s Scholarship recipient will be eligible to apply for tuition assistance in subsequent years, and any tuition assistance a student may be awarded will be based on the financial need of a student’s family, as determined by the FACTS and the amount of tuition assistance available from the QCES Foundation for that particular school year.
