Archdiocesan Scholarships

Nearly $42 Million in Financial Assistance Distributed in the 2022/2023 School Year

A private education that promotes college readiness and supports moral development is within reach for all families through the help of scholarships and financial assistance. This investment pays back for a lifetime in college and career opportunities, the strength of character and a lifelong network of friendship. 

The Archdiocese of Chicago offers need-based scholarships to new and current families and partners with local scholarship organizations. In addition, our Catholic schools individually offer financial assistance to help make a Catholic education both affordable and accessible for all those who wish to attend.

How do I Apply
Families must apply for all archdiocesan scholarships and local school financial assistance through the Archdiocese of Chicago Catholic School you would like your child to attend. The first step in securing a scholarship is to identify the preferred school for your child. Find a Catholic school near you

Please contact your preferred school to discuss the financial aid process and obtain a direct link to their FACTS grant and aid application. A completed and verified FACTS grant and aid application is required to be considered for financial assistance.

Scholarship opportunities also exist outside the archdiocese. The Scholarship and Tuition Assistance Options includes opportunities offered through non-archdiocesan partner organizations. Families are encouraged to speak with the financial aid department at the high school they are interested in attending to learn about other financial assistance offered directly through the school.

For more information regarding scholarships and financial aid, please contact your new, current or prospective Catholic school or email [email protected].
