Tuition Assistance


Tuition Assistance

The Catholic Education Foundation, the Archdiocese of Louisville and our funding partners are growing to meet the needs of families who cannot afford the full cost of educating their children in a Catholic elementary school. Here’s some additional information about the program.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE? All families with one or more children enrolled in or applying to a Catholic elementary school in the Archdiocese of Louisville are eligible to apply.

HOW DO I APPLY? A single form, the FACTS management application, will be used for all forms of Catholic elementary school tuition assistance. New for this year, families will be required to submit their application and upload their documents for processing online. CLICK HERE TO ACCESS ONLINE APPLICATION

DO I APPLY EVERY YEAR? Yes, you must apply for tuition assistance each year.

WHEN WILL I KNOW IF I HAVE BEEN GRANTED TUITION ASSISTANCE? Tuition assistance award letters will be mailed to families by June 1, 2017.


  • Complete only one FACTS application for your family, including all students in the family (elementary and high school) on the same form. FACTS will send a need evaluation to all funding sources for which each family could qualify as well as the schools you have listed on the form.
  • Given the high volume of applications, we encourage you to submit your form early to ensure timely completion of the review process. Completed applications received by March 15, 2017 will participate in the initial grant awards allocation. A much smaller amount of tuition assistance may be available for forms submitted after that date.

WHAT IF I HAVE QUESTIONS? Please call the Catholic Education Foundation at (502) 585-2747 or visit us online. We would be happy to assist you!

At the Catholic Education Foundation, the answer is YES!
