2019-2020 Tuition Assistance/Scholarship Awards
The steps necessary for students to be considered for assistance from their home parish and any scholarships:
- Student must be registered for the school year.
- 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.
Please check your FACTS Prepay accounts for aftercare and athletic fees. Many students currently have outstanding fees.
Registration fees for 2019-2020 school year must be paid in full before June 30, 2019. You may pay by check at the school office or through your FACTS Prepay- “Registration Fee 2019-2020” account.

School will dismiss at 2pm on Wednesdays for the 2019-2020 school year. Aftercare will be available at no charge each Wednesday until 3:10 pm, allowing parents to keep their daily pick up schedule. Each Wednesday, early dismissal will allow St. Elizabeth Seton faculty to work in a team approach by engaging in Professional Learning Communities (PLC’s). This ongoing process is for staff development and continued school improvement. It is collaborative where faculty work together in teams to share diverse ideas and practices to achieve shared vision for learning for all students.
