FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

Limited financial assistance may be available for families who have a demonstrated need. Aid may include Caritas, Rise, and/or McGraw Scholarships.  Rising Kindergarten through 8th grade students are eligible to apply.  

To be considered for financial assistance you must first submit a FACTS Grant and Aid Application, upload all required supporting documents, and pay the online application fee ($30) to FACTS. Caritas and McGraw Scholarships are renewable, but you must reapply through the FACTS Grand & Aid Application each year to be considered.  

In addition to local financial assistance, there is a state program called the Illinois State Tax Credit Scholarship Program which is made possible by the Illinois Invest in Kids Act, passed in the fall of 2017. This program is for families with a high level of demonstrated need (CHECK HERE TO SEE IF YOU WOULD QUALIFY).

The application period for this particular scholarship has passed for the 2019-20 school year. Please proceed with completing a FACTS Grand and Aid Application.
