Financial Aid

For the 33rd consecutive year, the Diocesan Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) is striving to keep Catholic school education affordable for Catholic families who desire it for their children but who may need some financial assistance to make that dream a reality.

Any Catholic student accepted for the 2024-2025 school year in any Diocesan Catholic school (PK thru grade 12) and who belongs to a parish included on the drop-down list as part of the online application is eligible.  Determinations are based upon a family’s degree of need relative to all other applicants.

How do I apply? Applications are made online. Go to, click on Family Login,
