The Diocesan of Arlington offers tuition assistance to enable children to attend diocesan schools. This assistance is made possible through many sources such as contributions from parishes in our diocese, the Rooted in Faith~Forward in Hope Capital Campaign, the legislative efforts of the Virginia Catholic Conference, and generous donors. A description of tuition assistance along with the criteria and process follows.
DIOCESAN TUITION ASSISTANCE PROGRAMAs a result of contributions of parishes along with endowment funding from the Rooted in Faith~Forward in Hope Capital Campaign, the diocese provides over $2,000,000 in tuition assistance to eligible families. A financial aid assessment must be submitted by the published date to verify financial need. Approved applications are made available to schools, along with the amount of funding that will be allotted. Schools make individual decisions with regard to the recipients and the amount of the award. Applicants must meet the published criteria, which includes being Catholic and living in the Diocese of Arlington.
DIOCESE OF ARLINGTON SCHOLARSHIP FOUNDATIONAccording to Virginia's new Education Improvement Scholarships Tax Credits program, donations to approved scholarship foundations will provide tuition scholarships to eligible students of lower-income families which enable them to attend non-public schools. In return for a donation, the donor receives a 65% tax credit on their Virginia taxes (certain regulations apply). The Diocese of Arlington Scholarship Foundation has been approved to receive these donations. A financial aid assessment must be completed to verify income level. Applicants must meet the published criteria.
