Tuition Assistance for Grades K - 8

 

It is our sincere desire that all who want to receive the benefit of Catholic education for their children are able to do so.
 
St. Jude School awards tuition assistance using a needs-based evaluation (FACTS Grant & Aid online application) for Catholic families who could not otherwise afford to attend. Families are required to apply each school year and submit the required tax documentation by the deadline in order to be considered for tuition assistance. There is a $40 application fee due at the time of application submission. Catholic families must submit a completed Parish Affiliation Form signed by their pastor, BEFORE they apply for tuition assistance.

St. Jude School is proud to be a vendor of the Tennessee Education Savings Account Program (ESA). Different than our Tuition Assistance Program, the ESA allows eligible families the opportunity to apply for scholarships for educational expenses including tuition. Once accepted, families will be able to receive the designated scholarship amount so long as their eligibility does not change.

This is a third party program that is offered through the state, not the school. Interested families need to apply through the resources listed below. Our dedicated team is here to help accepted families through the finalization process. If applicable, please note that your tuition assistance awarded by the Chattanooga Deanery Tuition Fund will be adjusted based on your ESA scholarship award, if you receive both.

*Applications for the 2024-2025 school year will be open early 2024.*
