Tuition Assistance

St. John the Baptist Catholic School uses FACTS Tuition Management to make quality educational affordable for families. Through FACTS, we offer a custom application and collect financial data to make accurate award decisions based on financial need.

After completing the online application, you will need to upload all required supporting documentation. If you are unable to upload, fax the required documents to (866) 315-9264.

All documentation received is imaged upon receipt and then destroyed.

You may log in to your FACTS user account to review the status of your application. Please allow 2 weeks processing time before inquiring further about receipt and/or status of the uploaded or faxed documents. Application deadlines are set by the institution awarding the aid. If you are applying after the deadline, contact your school to ensure that your application will be accepted.

A non-refundable application fee of $30 is required before your application will be submitted.
