Pope John Paul II High School and its Board of Directors are committed to making a Catholic secondary education affordable for your student through JPII’s Financial Aid Program. We encourage all families to talk with us before deciding they cannot afford JPII. The last thing we want is that your decision is based solely on finances nor would we want finances to be the primary obstacle for you to join the JPII community.
We have contracted with the FACTS program to provide the analysis of need for all families. Your personal information will not be given to the school, only an analysis of your need-based upon the same criteria for all families.
JPII has two sources of tuition assistance: Fulcrum Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) and direct JPII Financial Aid. Both use the same application process and timeline. By applying for Fulcrum, you are also applying for our financial aid. JPII financial aid will only be granted by completing the FACTS online application.
With FACTs, you will need to pay an annual $29 processing fee per family. As part of the on-line FACTS application process you will need to upload all required supporting documentation. This may include:
- Copies of your most recent federal tax forms including all supporting tax schedules.
- Copies of your W-2 forms for both you and your spouse.
- Copies of supporting documentation for social security income, welfare, child support, food stamps, workers compensation, and TANF.
The initial deadline for financial aid applications is January 15th of each year. However, applications are accepted until all scholarship dollars are expended.
If you have questions about the financial aid process, please feel free to contact us at any time.
