Financial Aid

 

Saint John Paul II Catholic Academy’s financial aid fund is generously provided by the Catholic Schools Foundation. Since we dispense Catholic Schools Foundation funds, we are required to follow their guidelines for the distribution of aid.

Please note financial assistance for the 2016-17 school year is closed.

Our financial aid process for the upcoming school year has changed. We are required by Catholic Schools Foundation to allocate all of our financial aid according to strict guidelines. 

WHAT THIS MEANS FOR CURRENT FAMILIES?

Any current family that does not submit the online application and upload or fax the 2016 federal tax return and/or non-taxable income documentation by April 18th, 2017 to Grant & Aid will not receive financial aid for the 2017-18 school year. It is very important that all families register and pay the registration fee at the campus by April 18th or the financial aid will not be allocated. All balances (i.e tuition, lunch, after school) must be completed by June 5th, 2017 in order to receive financial aid. Any balance after this date will not receive financial aid, regardless of a completed application.

  • Do not wait to file for 2016 federal taxes, just bring your 2016 W-2's to your financial aid appointment (application can be submitted but will not be verified without your 2016 federal taxes)
  • If you have not yet completed the re-registration form or have not decided whether or not to return for the 2017-2018 school year, do not miss out on the opportunity to apply for aid
  • If you do not apply by the April 18 deadline, your family will not be eligible for financial aid for the 2017-2018 school year; no exceptions.
 

WHAT THIS MEANS FOR NEW FAMILIES TO THE ACADEMY?

New families should submit the financial aid application online after they have been accepted in the Academy and have submitted the registration fee to the campus. If an application is received but the student is not registered with the campus, the application will not be considered for financial aid.

Any new family that does not submit the online application and upload or fax the 2016 federal tax return and/or non-taxable income documentation by August 14th, 2017 to Grant & Aid will not receive financial aid for the 2017-18 school year. It is very important that all families register and pay the registration fee at the campus prior to completing a financial aid application or the financial aid will not be allocated. 

FINANCIAL AID REQUIREMENTS

As in years past, the requirements for the financial aid application are as follows:

  • The financial aid applicant must claim the student on their personal tax return and students must be entering grades K2 to 8 to be eligible. We encourage our preschool aged families to complete a financial aid application in case scholarships are received, but these are not guaranteed and financial aid cannot be allocated to preschool aged children.
  • The federal tax return for 2016 and W2's must be submitted and/or proof of nontaxable income if not working. These documents can be uploaded from your computer or faxed to 866-315-9264 (FACTS Grant & Aid). Please note SJPIICA is not responsible if FACTS does not receive or upload your taxes by the aforementioned deadlines.
  • Payments must be made through a FACTS automatic Payment Plan or financial aid will not be allocated; no exceptions.
  • All SJP balances must be paid in full or financial aid cannot be awarded.
  • Any student receiving financial aid must have first paid their registration fee and submitted a re-enrollment contract to their campus.
