Financial Aid

At San Miguel Catholic School, we offer generous scholarship opportunities to help make funding a private Catholic education affordable; however, scholarships may not be combined. We are understanding of the challenges families face and work diligently to support those who are unable to pay the full cost of tuition.

Currently, tuition assistance is available through the Catholic Education Foundation (CEF). The application period typically begins in March and ends in April. Furthermore, San Miguel School also has a limited amount of financial support to offer to new families that miss the CEF application period. The same guidelines used by the CEF are used for consideration unless otherwise stipulated by the respective donor.

All decisions are subject to the availability of funds.

Catholic Education Foundation

All San Miguel Catholic students are eligible to apply for the need-based Tuition Award Program offered by the Catholic Education Foundation. This program offers financial assistance to economically disadvantaged students so they can attend Catholic school.

cef_1TAP provides $1,000 annually per student in Elementary Schools (Transitional Kindergarten to 8th grade) and $2,000 to high school students. These awards have resulted in a positive impact not only for the students but also their families and surrounding neighborhoods.

Typically, completed applications with supporting documents are due by the end of March.
