Panther Priorities

2019-2020 Tuition Assistance/Scholarship Awards
The steps necessary for students to be considered for assistance from their home parish and any scholarships:

  1. Student must be registered for the school year.
  2. FACTS Grant and Aid application must be completed and in “verified” status.

If you are wishing tuition support from your home parish, please meet with your priest or parish representative to discuss tuition assistance. When scholarships become available, school administration reviews the scholarship criteria and uses the FACTS Grant and Aid application results to identify families that meet the criteria. Scholarship applications will only be given to those identified families.

Outstanding Fees
Please check your FACTS Prepay accounts for aftercare and athletic fees. Many students currently have outstanding fees.

Seton Yearbook Purchase
Be sure to go online at https://www.treering.com/validate?PassCode=1015378175441915 to purchase your copy of the 2018-2019 yearbook. Copies MUST be purchased by you through this link by Friday, April 19th, 2019. No copies will be available for purchase this year unless ordered through the website first. After this date, you may purchase yearbooks but they will be delivered directly to your home for an additional fee.
