Financial Aid for Students

Kindergarten through 8th Grade

The Diocese of Cleveland understands that Catholic education is an investment in the future of our children and in our faith. Unsurpassed academic achievement, along with the reinforcement of Catholic faith and formation, a Catholic education provides a solid foundation for personal success.

Diocesan tuition assistance dollars are raised through the Catholic Community Foundation of the Catholic Diocese of Cleveland. Thanks to the generosity of donors throughout the diocese to initiatives such as the Rooted in Faith-Forward in Hope Campaign, the Alleluia Ball Benefit, and the Faith and Values Appeal, assistance is available to many students in need.

These funds are distributed yearly to families through a process that takes into account financial need and total amount of funds available that year.
