Tuition Assistance

It is a part of our mission and vision to provide a Catholic Education within the boundaries of our four parishes for all those who desire to be a part of St. Junipero Serra Catholic School.  St. Serra is so grateful for the sacrifices our many families make to send their children to our Catholic School.  We are also very appreciative of the significant number of benefactors who contribute to our Tuition Assistance program on a regular basis.  

We want all current families to be able to remain at SJSC should financial issues present themselves, therefore we offer tuition assistance to those who qualify through our blind, third-party process.

Here are some important factors about the Educational Cost Assistance process and application guidelines:

Eligibility

1.    Complete SJSC registration (new and existing families)

2.    Complete FACTS Grant & Aid Application

FACTS Recommendations and Awards

FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment is an independent, third party company that conducts financial analysis to determine the family's financial need. FACTS provides SJCS with a financial recommendation from their application.  Blind recommendations are provided to the SJSC Financial Aid Committee for review.  Financial aid is awarded to families based on FACTS recommendations, circumstances and available funds.
