It is our goal to ensure no child is denied a Catholic school education due to financial constraints. The Archdiocese of New York and its Parishes, Inner-City Scholarship Fund and Children’s Scholarship Fund are making new scholarship awards and financial assistance available for the 2016-2017 school year. Please carefully read through all of the sections below to learn how you can apply.
Who can apply for financial assistance or scholarship support?
A student new to the Catholic Elementary Schools of the Archdiocese of New York whose family meets the income eligibility requirements may apply. Although available financial assistance and scholarships have increased significantly, financial assistance and scholarships are determined within grades and income levels, and the earlier students apply, the better their chances of receiving financial assistance.
Only families who fall within the income eligibility requirements can be approved for financial assistance and scholarships.
To determine whether you are eligible for potential financial assistance, please review the following schedule:
*Eligible income includes: Income as reported on Federal form 1040 in addition to public assistance, food stamps, child support or alimony, social security benefits, SSI, and/or disability, unemployment benefits, workers' compensation, other government assistance and financial aid from family/friends if applicable.
You will be given a link and access code to apply for financial assistance/scholarship upon submission of your online admissions application.
Please save the user ID and password used to create this application. You will be able to log in and see your saved data. In addition, please use the same user ID and password if completing a financial assistance/scholarship application.
To apply to more than one school, or for more than one child please go to secure.TADS.com and login again using your saved user ID and password.
To complete the online admissions process you will need a valid email address.
If you do not have a valid email address, please create one prior to proceeding.
