Financial Assistance

We understand and appreciate the financial commitment and sacrifice families undertake in deciding to send their children to a Catholic school. And although paying for education is first and foremost the responsibility of the family, St. Catherine Academy and the Archdiocese of Detroit devote significant funds each year to financial aid programs that help assist families.

Every effort will be made to award some tuition support to eligible candidates. Students may be eligible for a grant each of their four years at St. Catherine Academy; however, families must apply each year. Awards are not automatically renewed.

Our tuition assistance program is designed to bridge the gap between what a family can afford and what it costs to attend St. Catherine Academy.

Estimated Tuition Assistance*

Family Income      Est. Tuition Assistance
Up to $75K            $6,000 - $11,000
$75K - $100K       $1,000 - $8,000
$100K+                  $0 – $4,000

The table above represents typical ranges of awards. All awards are individually assessed by FACTS Grant & Aid and the St. Catherine of Siena Finance Committee. Tuition Assistance can only be considered for a family once the FACTS Grant & Aid application is complete and all required documents are included. Each award takes into account many factors, including all income sources. Actual awards may be higher or lower than listed above, depending on a family’s circumstances and availability of Tuition Assistance funds.

*Estimated Tuition Assistance based all income sources, available funds, number of applicants, and timing of application.
