St. Michael Parish School is deeply committed to providing access to Catholic education through tuition assistance for families demonstrating financial need. Families who request tuition assistance for the 2020-2021 school year are invited to apply for tuition assistance through the Fulcrum Foundation Tuition Assistance Grant Program. Both Fulcrum and St. Michael Parish School use the same application process and timeline. By applying to Fulcrum, you are also applying for local tuition assistance through St. Michael Parish School. Tuition assistance will only be granted for the next school year by completing this online application process.
The tuition assistance application opens Tuesday, October 1st and closes on January 8, 2020. I encourage you to apply ASAP, before the busy holiday months and school breaks. If you plan to apply for tuition assistance for the 2020-2021 school year, then you need to apply by January 8, 2020. The amount of each Fulcrum grant is $1,300. Award letters from the Fulcrum Foundation will then be mailed out on March 3, 2020.
The Fulcrum Foundation is once again partnering with FACTS to manage the collection and processing of tuition assistance applications. Award decisions will be made by Fulcrum and will be based on financial need. Each family will pay a $29 fee to FACTS for the processing of your tuition assistance application. This fee covers all applications for one year. The application can be accessed at https://online.factsmgt.com/signin/4CDW0 starting on October 1, 2019.
Submitting the requested tax and W-2 information is a required component of the tuition assistance application process. This documentation must be uploaded online. FACTS will no longer accept faxed or hard copy mailed documentation. If you have questions about the application process, you may speak with a FACTS Customer Care Representative at 866-441-4637.
