Assumption-St. Bridget School
2020-21 Tuition Assistance Procedures
It is our policy at Assumption-St. Bridget School to make a Catholic education accessible to our current and prospective parish families, space permitting, regardless of their ability to pay tuition.
Families who receive Tuition Assistance are generally required to pay some portion of their tuition obligation – full Tuition Assistance grants are rarely awarded. Families who receive Tuition Assistance grants are still asked to fulfill their other financial obligations to the school and parish (including but not limited to the following: application fee, book fee, fundraising contributions, activity fees and church stewardship commitment).
In addition to ASB School Tuition Assistance grants, families may also be eligible for financial assistance through the Seattle Archdiocese Fulcrum Foundation.
To be considered for both ASB School Tuition Assistance AND/OR Fulcrum Foundation grants, families must complete the FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment Application (see below for instructions), pay the $29 application fee assessed by FACTS, and upload the required supporting documentation.
The FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment application window is now open.
The DEADLINE for applications is January 8, 2020 – Families who complete the FACTS application and submit the required supporting documentation by January 8, 2020 will be considered for two grants:
1. Seattle Archdiocese Fulcrum Foundation Grant of $1,300
2. Tuition Assistance from Assumption-St. Bridget School
Families will not be reimbursed for the $29 application fee.
Families will be notified no later than end of March 2020 if they have been awarded either a Fulcrum Grant and/or an Assumption-St. Bridget Tuition Assistance grant.
