Tuition Affordability

Our goal at Saint Patrick Catholic School is that no child is denied the opportunity to attend because their family feels they can’t afford it. We are committed to doing all we can to meet the needs of our families by providing what we believe to be fair and substantial tuition assistance packages. We’re willing to meet with every family seeking a way for their children to attend Saint Patrick Catholic School.

Tuition Assistance Resources

There are two primary sources of tuition assistance:

  • Fulcrum Tuition Assistance Grant Program (TAP) through the Archdiocese of Seattle (K-8th grade)
  • Saint Patrick Catholic School Tuition Assistance Program (StPTAP) (PreK-8th grade)

Fulcrum  Tuition Assistance Grant Program (TAP)

Applications for the 2023 – 2024 school year are accepted through January 6, 2023. The Fulcrum Tuition Assistance Grant Program is designed for families and students currently enrolled or applying for the next school year in any Catholic school in the Archdiocese of Seattle.

Families must apply through FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment each year to qualify for a grant—all awards are made based on financial need. Families may apply for tuition assistance regardless of their application or admissions status. Go to the Frequently Asked Questions page on the Fulcrum website to learn more about Fulcrum Tuition Assistance Program.

St. Patrick Tuition Assistance Program (StPTAP)

StPTAP applications are also due by January 6, 2023. After that date, we continue to accept applications until funds are distributed and no longer available.

Fulcrum and St. Patrick Tuition Assistance Program uses a standard application called FACTS. Complete the form once to be considered for the Fulcrum TAP and the StPTAP.
