Financial Aid

Catholic Education Foundation

The Catholic Education Foundation (CEF) for the Archdiocese of Cincinnati accepts applications for elementary school (K-8) tuition assistance grants. All grants are needs-based and can be used at any Catholic elementary school within the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Typically, awards have ranged from $250 to $1,200 per qualified student. 

Complete a FACTS Grant and Aid application by inputting financial information (such as sources of income, assets, and household expenses), including your prior year tax return and W2s. FACTS then uses an internally built calculation to determine financial need based on the family’s ability to pay. The deadline for CEF applications is February 24, 2024.
