Diocesan Scholarship Program


Dear Parent/Guardian,

The Diocese of Sioux City Catholic Schools Scholarship program and St. Mary’s School are pleased to once again provide tuition assistance to qualifying families. This program, supported by over 700 donors provides expanded opportunities to help qualifying families afford the Catholic School of their choice.

Both the Diocesan Scholarship program and St. Mary’s School will be utilizing FACTS Management in Lincoln, NE to assist in determining the level of assistance to be awarded. Your personal information will be held in strictest confidence at all times. If divorced parents each pay a portion of the tuition bill, then each household needs to complete an application for a possible award towards their portion of tuition. There is a $23.00 non-refundable processing fee for the online application payable to FACTS.

The FACTS application needs to be completed no later than April 1, 2017. The application is available online  https://online.factsmgt.com/signin/3ZC3D in both English and Spanish. See the enclosed “Grant & Aid Assessment” flyer from FACTS for specific requirements. We urge you to complete the materials early to allow time for notification of any missing materials.

At St. Mary’s School, we are happy to assist you with the application process. A brief video about how to begin the application process can be found to the left. If you do not have Internet access to complete this application online, please call the Finance Office at 732-3110 for assistance.

We strongly encourage every family to complete an application. The Diocesan Financial Scholarship coupled with our local tuition assistance program will be able to make Catholic Education affordable for all.

If you have questions about the assistance program, contact the Finance Office at 732-3110. Contact the FACTS call center at 1-866-441-4637 with specific questions about the application. This is a wonderful opportunity for qualifying families.
