We believe that all qualified students should have the opportunity to benefit from a quality, Catholic education regardless of ability to pay.
For the 2020-21 school year, JPII awarded over $500,000 in tuition assistance and scholarships to families with incomes ranging from $12,000/year to $180,000 and above/year. This was made possible through the generosity of our donors, the support of the Catholic Archdiocese Fulcrum Foundation and Saint Michael Parish. Sacred Heart Catholic Parish will begin offering scholarships to parishioners beginning in 2021.
JPII’s commitment to accessibility means that over 58% of our school population receives support through tuition assistance or scholarships each year.
While the application deadline for the 2021-22 school year has passed, we encourage you to reach out at any time to our Business Manager Monica Davis email@example.com if your family’s financial circumstances have changed. We endeavor to make a Pope John Paul II High School education accessible to all interested families.
Please note: Tuition assistance applications for JPII must be completed each year. The Fulcrum Foundation will not accept late applications.
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.
