Each school in the Archdiocese sets its own tuition, but we’ve put together a comprehensive portfolio of need-based and merit-based opportunities available to existing or incoming AOPS students.

These programs, in addition to offers available from individual schools, can drastically reduce —or even eliminate— tuition costs.

 For Archdiocesan Employees, there are assistance monies available through the Archbishop’s Fund. Please click here to download the application:Archbishops Grant 17-18

Frequently Asked Questions


Q: Who should complete this aid application?

A: Whomever the child resides with should complete this application whether it is a parent, grandparent, aunt/uncle, or legal guardian. There is a section within the application where you can enter contributions from non-custodial parents and relatives.


Q: Why do I need to input my spouse’s information if I am remarried and they are not legally responsible for my children?

A: Smart Aid’s calculation works off of the total household income, therefore including all income, whether the party is legally responsible for your children or not. Our system however, does take into effect your spouse’s expenses as well as their income. It is important to list all expenses that are asked of within the application.


Q: I do not have the required tax documents. HELP!

A: Include the most recent tax documentation you have available. If you are asked for a specific line from a tax document that you have not yet completed, please estimate the projected amount.

A: We do not disclose information about the results of your application. All final tuition aid decisions, including notification of an award amount (if any); will be made by your school. For the date award notices will be given, please contact your school directly.
