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. 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. PreK4 students are not eligible for financial aid.
