"It is the intent of the Pastors' Board that no qualified Catholic student should be denied an education at The High School of Saint Thomas More because of lack of financial resources. As a consequence, the parishes of the Champaign Vicariate have made generous financial assistance funds available to children of their parishioners." --STM Student Handbook
Process to Apply for Assistance
A. Meet your parish requirements. The parishes of the Champaign Vicariate generously provide financial assistance from their parish budgets.
To be considered a "family in good standing" for purposes of financial assistance, the Pastors may look to the following criteria:
- The family is an active registered parishioner of the parish. Sunday Mass attendance will be discussed.
- The family is actively supporting the parish with its time, talents and treasures.
- The family completes all parts to the application for financial assistance by the deadline.
B. Complete FACTS Grant & Aid Application online and upload all required documentation by March 15.
C. After recommendation from FACTS and the Diocesan review, families will meet with their Pastor to discuss tuition assistance.
