Families at 23 suburban elementary Catholic schools within the Archdiocese of Philadelphia have received unexpected tuition assistance thanks to a grant awarded by the Ambassador’s Fund for Catholic Education. As schools begin to reopen amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, we know these families are beyond grateful to know their children continue to receive the best quality education.

The grants to families range from $500 to $2,500. They were offered in two groups. The first group of families among 12 schools received grants based on coronavirus-caused illness, loss of employment, or loss of business. The second group of families among 11 schools are associated with parishes participating in the Catholic Leadership Institute’s Next Generation Parish.

At this time, half of each grant is applied to the student’s fall tuition. Once families can reevaluate their financial circumstances, the remaining assistance will be allotted as needed. 

The Archdiocese has many resources available for families still looking for tuition assistance. Please check out what is available here for further information about financial aid, grants and scholarships.
