Choosing Catholic education is an investment in your child’s future. When you make an investment in our challenging academic program, your child will be prepared for high school, college, and beyond. It is also an investment in the formation of a child with an active faith in God, a sense of respect and responsibility, and a sense of purpose in life.
We understand the sacrifice that parents make to invest in a Catholic education for their child. To help lessen the burden on parish families, the parish provides a subsidy to the school to cover the difference between the actual cost to educate each child and the tuition charged to parish families.
At Frassati Catholic Academy, we strive to make Catholic education affordable to all who seek it. There are several needs based Financial Assistance programs available to our families, including Tax Credit Scholarships and Caritas. We offer financial aid to families who may be going through difficult times or who need financial support to make Catholic education a viable choice. We offer assistance through the Archdiocese of Chicago. We also offer Hardship Assistance to those families who may be experiencing a significant life changing event.
In order to apply for financial assistance, families should submit their completed financial aid application forms to FACTS by April 15th, annually.
FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment Instructions
Priority will be given to families who submit their applications by this deadline and families will be notified of their award amounts. After the deadline, financial aid grants will be awarded on a rolling basis as the funds are available. Please know that all information submitted for financial aid consideration is held confidentially.
Illinois Tax Credit Scholarships
