Ayuda Financiera

Financial Aid

The Archdiocese of Atlanta is continuously working to ensure that a quality Catholic education is available to as many families as possible. In pursuit of this goal, parish assessments for Catholic education will provide $3.1 million in financial aid to Archdiocesan schools for allocation to qualified families. Across the Archdiocese, individual schools will contribute an additional $3.5 million in financial aid. With redirection of tax dollars to our student scholarship organization (GRACE Scholars, Inc.), the total amount of available funding for financial assistance exceeds $8 million. The financial aid process is defined locally by each school and utilizes the services of FACTS Tuition Management for families to establish financial need. Please contact the Admissions Office of our schools for additional information.

GRACE SCHOLARS, INC.

GRACE Scholars, Inc., is the official student scholarship organization (SSO) for the schools sponsored by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Atlanta. All students receiving GRACE Awards have demonstrated financial need as determined by a third-party analysis of a family’s ability to pay tuition. Schools in the Archdiocese of Atlanta reserve the right to decline funding from SSOs that do not award scholarships based on financial need. In addition, the maximum amount of SSO scholarships awarded to students in Archdiocesan Schools is the lowest of the following: student’s calculated financial need; 80% of the tuition rate applicable to the student; an index of per-pupil public school spending in Georgia; and, the maximum cap established by the local school. GRACE Scholars, Inc., welcomes the transfer of funding from one SSO to another as allowed by state law. In these instances, the school reserves the right to award GRACE scholarships in accordance with local procedures.
