FINANCIAL ASSISTANCEEconomic diversity is valued at AACA. To that end, we offer needs-based tuition assistance to those families who value a Catholic education and need financial assistance to fulfill their tuition commitment. FACTS Tuition Management provides an application for financial assistance that should be completed online. Every attempt will be made to secure aid so that no student is unable to attend AACA due to genuine financial hardship. The application process will open on November 1. In order to be considered for the highest level of tuition assistance, the tuition assistance request forms must be filled out completely and submitted by April 1 for the next school year. All supporting information must be included and the account classified as "Complete" in FACTS in order to be considered.
The actual tuition assistance amount offered to a family is determined by the Tuition Assistance Committee based upon a number of factors, including the FACTS assistance application and the amount of tuition assistance available in the school budget. The amount of assistance will be unique to each family. Financial awards are effective for one school year and will be evaluated on an annual basis. All existing financial commitments must be met in order to qualify for assistance for the following school year.
