Tuition Assistance

Making the Investment in PVI

We understand that sending your child to a private high school is a significant investment for your family. We are grateful for your commitment to St. Paul VI Catholic High School, and we want to work with you to make sure a PVI education is within reach for your son or daughter.
With tuition covering 80% of the cost of a PVI education, we are grateful to those in our community who give generously. Their support helps to make up the difference and keep our school affordable. Thank you!

Applying for Tuition Assistance

All students must submit a financial assistance application to be considered for assistance. Completion requires various steps:

  1. Applications are submitted to a third-party vendor, FACTS, which conducts an independent evaluation. Apply for assistance
  2. After completing the application, you must send the substantiating documentation to FACTS. No application will be reviewed or given consideration until all supporting documentation has been submitted.
  3. The Financial Assistance Committee at PVI receives the evaluation and makes decisions concerning the allocation of funds.

Appeals Process

Paul VI and the Financial Assistance Committee understand that not all family circumstances can be conveyed in the assistance application.

If you wish to appeal an assistance decision, your first step is to send an email (preferred) or a letter explaining your family circumstances. The Financial Assistance Committee meets regularly to review appeals.

Merit Based Scholarships

Saint Paul VI Catholic High School is able to offer merit-based scholarships to incoming freshmen for the 2023-24 academic year. Our Admissions Committee will consider first-year students who have demonstrated a record of academic excellence, leadership, and strong character during their middle school years. Financial need is not a consideration for these scholarships, and no additional application is required. Receiving an academic scholarship does not disqualify a family from applying for tuition assistance. These scholarships may be renewable each year.

Financial Assistance Timeline

  • The financial assistance application should be submitted at the same time as the application to the school.
  • The application process begins each November for the upcoming school year (e.g., November 2022 for the 2023-2024 school year).  
  • The Office of Catholic Schools determines the application deadline date. To be considered in the first round of decisions, applications must be received by January 6, 2023.
    • The deadline is prior to the freshman acceptance letters being mailed. If you have an incoming student and will need financial assistance, we suggest you apply for financial assistance prior to your acceptance.
  • Awards for the incoming freshman class and transfers are mailed at the same time as the acceptance letters. All other awards notifications are mailed by the end of May.

Important Notes

  • Families must reapply each year.
  • Award amounts can vary from year to year and continued assistance cannot be guaranteed.
  • If you have students in other diocesan schools, you only need apply one time. Please list all students and schools on the application. This is easier for you and allows the diocese to see your family’s complete situation.
