Affording Saint Anthony

Even in difficult financial times a Catholic education is a value many families are not willing to do without. We see many Catholic schools in our neighboring towns close, yet our Saint Anthony community is holding strong to keep our “Heritage of Excellence” thriving. Our parents are so pleased with their children’s success that they are willing to make sacrifices and doing all they can to keep their children enrolled.

Financial Assistance

Through the support and generosity of our Saint Anthony community, benefactors, and foundations, we are able to extend aid to our families in need, thus fostering a more diverse school community.

Saint Anthony offers financial aid for returning Catholic students whose families cannot afford the full cost of tuition. Financial aid assistance is awarded on the basis of demonstrated financial need to qualified Catholic students.  Please view our Financial Aid Philosophy for more information on eligibility and the application process.

All families who are interested in financial aid are encouraged to apply through FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment. All financial aid awards are based upon the family’s need and special circumstances as supplied in their FACTS application.

Saint Anthony Catholic School believes strongly in providing service to the community and financial aid to those in need. It is the responsibility of parents/guardians to submit the FACTS application online, no later than March 1st so that financial aid decisions can be made on a timely basis.  A Special Circumstance Form must also be completed and forwarded directly to the Business Office.
