Grant & Aid
It is understood and appreciated the financial commitment and sacrifice families undertake in deciding to send their children to a Catholic school. And although paying for education is first and foremost the responsibility of a family, each school, parish and the Archdiocese of Baltimore devote significant funds each year to financial aid programs that help assist families. In turn, our school communities benefit by attracting students that otherwise would not be able to attend our schools.
The 2018-2019 school year application through the State Department of Education is now available online.
The State of Maryland is now accepting applications for its BOOST scholarship program for the 2018-19 school year! Now in its third year, the BOOST Program awards scholarships to income-eligible K-12 students to be used for attendance at any eligible Catholic school. Additionally, a portion of BOOST funding will be directed for higher scholarships to assist students with special needs. This year, there’s $7.6 million available, so please apply!
