Grant & Aid

Financial Assistance

It is understood and appreciated 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 a family, St. Joseph School - Fullerton, St. Joseph Church, and the Archdiocese of Baltimore devote significant funds each year to financial aid programs that help assist families. The FACTS financial aid application can be completed for students in Kindergarten through 8th grade. PreK-4 students are not eligible for financial aid.

Families applying for financial aid will need to complete an application and submit the necessary supporting documentation to FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment by February 28, 2021. Applicants must apply online and there is a $34 application fee.

There is a short grace period to upload 2020 tax documents until mid-March. All other required documents must be uploaded by the February 28 deadline. Please note that this deadline is different from previous year's deadline and is firm due to the overwhelming amount of applications submitted thus far. Unfortunately, incomplete applications will not be considered because the requests far outweigh the available funds.

For further information or questions, please contact Mrs. Teresa McGuire, FACTS Coordinator, at 410-256-8026 x130 or tmcguire@stjoeschool.org.
