All Catholic Schools and the Foundation for the Diocese of El Paso use FACTS Grant & Aid for accesory financial need. The Grant & Aid assessment piece allows our families to enter their personal data in a highly secure environment while at the same time providing the service of assessing need in an objective manner. This ensures us that we are granting financial aid to those who need it and allows the school the resources to prioritize families when school resources are limited. The information collected is confidential. You need only submit the form once for all requests, just check of all schools and the Education Assistance Fund or Foundation of the Diocese of El Paso for them to receive your information. Please note the deadlines for the various funds and your local school(s).
Financial aid is given annually in the Fall, and emergency financial aid is distributed each Spring. For instructions, on how to apply for financial aid through FACTS, click here:
