Grant & Aid
It is understood and appreciated the financial commitment and sacrifice families undertake in deciding to send their children to a Catholic school. And although paying for education is first and foremost the responsibility of a family, each school, parish and the Archdiocese of Baltimore devote significant funds each year to financial aid programs that help assist families. In turn, our school communities benefit by attracting students that otherwise would not be able to attend our schools.
What is Grant & Aid?
Tuition grant and aid is a need-based analysis of the cost of education vs. a family’s ability to pay . To objectively assess what a family is able to contribute to its student(s) education expenses, an independent third party (FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment) is used. Any tuition assistance awards received do not have to be repaid.

What types of Grant & Aid are available?
Church of the Resurrection and St. Paul Church Grant and Aid
Parish grant and aid is available for registered, practicing parishioners of the Church of the Resurrection and St. Paul Church. All funds available for grant and aid comes from your fellow parishioners. It is meant for parish families. Please note the eligibility requirements below:
- Must be a registered, practicing parishioner for one year prior to applying for grant and aid
- A pattern of giving at the Parish either through envelopes or EFT draft
- Weekly Mass attendance
- At least one parent/guardian must be a practicing Catholic

- No one student is eligible for more than half the cost of tuition
Families that do not show a regular pattern of giving will not be considered for parish tuition assistance rewards.
Other Parish Grant and Aid
All parishes in the Archdiocese of Baltimore contribute to the Archdiocese of Baltimore School Fund. If you are registered parishioner at a Parish other than Church of the Resurrection and St. Paul Church we strongly recommend you meet with your pastor to discuss the possibility of grant and aid. We have found many parishes are willing to support their parishioners in obtaining a Catholic education for their child(ren).
Archdiocesan Grant and Aid
Archdiocesan tuition grant and aid is available to registered parishioners of any Catholic church in the Archdiocese of Baltimore. A financial grant may apply to each student, so a family with several children in the school or in various Catholic schools in the Archdiocese could receive a grant for each child. Archdiocesan tuition assistance generally comes from two funding sources: the Partners in Excellence Program and the Archdiocese of Baltimore School Fund. The Archdiocese is also contracted with FACTS Grant & Aid so each family need only apply for grant and aid once. All applications will be reviewed by the Archdiocese to determine which families may also qualify for Archdiocesan aid. Grants awarded by the Archdiocese are renewed annually for the child’s entire K-12 Catholic education as long as the family remains eligible. Completed and verified applications must be received no later than February 28th annually. All tuition assistance awards are contingent upon a completed FACTS Grant & Aid application with all required documentation submitted prior to the application due date of February 28th.
This Grant is available to new students coming to Resurrection-St. Paul School from public school. It is only available to incoming new students entering 2nd – 6th grade. There are a limited number of grants available. Grants will be given to students that align to the principles and character that the school values. A shadow day and student interview are required along with a completed application.
First Year – $2,000 Grant
Second Year -$1,000 Grant
