St. Vincent de Paul Catholic School is committed to keeping the cost to attend as affordable as possible for families seeking an excellent Catholic education for their children, especially families with financial needs.
In the words of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, “Catholic schools should be available, accessible, and affordable, to all Catholic parents and their children” and we strive to honor that commitment. We offer a need-based financial assistance program for qualifying students in grades K-8. Due to the limited number of spaces in PreKindergarten, we are unable to offer financial aid until students enter Kindergarten. Recognizing that cost can be a hurdle, we encourage families to apply for financial aid if cost to attend is a challenge.
Assistance is based on the financial need established through FACTS, a 3rd party program. This is CONFIDENTIAL PROGRAM. The Financial Assistance Review Committee reviews financial records, never seeing family names.
Financial Aid applications are accepted, electronically via FACTS, from January to March each year. Awards are finalized and distributed in April. For 2018-19, more than $117,000 in financial aid was awarded to approximately 11% of SVdP students.
