There are a number of different sources from which qualified families may receive tuition assistance to send their children to St. Rocco’s School.
To apply for tuition assistance, families should complete a tuition assistance application and submit it to our needs-assessment provider, FACTS Grant & Aid Management by March 13th. Applications can be obtained at the FACTS Management website, https://online.factsmgt.com/signin/3FR8T and submit the necessary supporting documentation. One application is sufficient for all siblings attending Catholic schools, K-12. Awards are not renewable, so families must re-apply each and every year.
If you applied for Grant & Aid assessment in the past your username and password are the same if not; please choose “Create a username and password” to begin the application process for Grant & Aid for the new school year.
St. Rocco School families received over $20,000 in Grant & Aid last year. All assistance for the upcoming academic year will be based on the results of the FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment.
The parish provides tuition assistance to families who wish for their child to obtain a Catholic education and who can demonstrate a financial need. Please contact the parish for additional details.

Children do not need to reside in particular neighborhoods or cities to apply or receive financial aid.

Awards are made possible by the generous donations of corporations, foundations, and individuals – and a tireless group of volunteers who are committed to the education of our children. Contributions are welcome and encouraged.
