Parish Assistance:

Parents who enroll their child in any Catholic Parish School may request Financial Assistance for grades 1-8 from their home Parish,
by sending a subsidy request to their Pastor. St. Joseph Parishioners must submit a subsidy request to Fr. Stephen Banjare by April 14th.
(Forms available in the School Office). Non-Parishioners need to contact their own Pastors.

Diocesan Assistance:

Additional Financial Assistance based on family need is also available from the Foundation for the Advancement of Catholic Education (FACE) for students in grades K-8. Apply online.
Once Financial Aid is verified, monthly Tuition payments will be adjusted.
