Tuition Assistance 2018-2019

It remains our goal at Saint Patrick Catholic School that no child be denied the opportunity to attend our school because his or her family feels they can’t afford it.  While our financial resources don’t permit us to provide tuition assistance to every family, 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 are willing to meet with each and every family to find a way for their children to attend Saint Pat’s.

Incomplete or late applications will adversely impact any tuition assistance award you might receive.

All Requests must be completed online through the FACTS Grant & Aid Application.

Tuition Assistance Sources

There are two primary sources for tuition assistance:

  1. Fulcrum Foundation Grants (FFG) through the Archdiocese of Seattle (K-8th grade)
  2. St. Patrick Catholic School Tuition Assistance Program (StPTAP) (Pre-K-8th grade)

Fulcrum Foundation Grants (FFG)(K-8th grade)

Applications for next school year 2018/19 are accepted from October 1, 2017 to January 5, 2018. More information about this program is available on Fulcrum’s website. Click here.

St. Patrick Tuition Assistance Program (StPTAP)(Pre-K-8th grade)

StPTAP (PreK-8th grade) applications will be available on October 1, 2017 and due in by January 31, 2018.  When the deadline has passed, we will continue to accept applications for the 2018/19 school year, until funds are no longer available.

How to Apply

To apply for Fulcrum and/or the StPTAP, we are using a common application called FACTS. It is only necessary to complete the form once to be considered for both the FFG and the StPTAP.
