Financial Assistance

Applying for Financial Assistance

At Saint Joseph’s Catholic Academy we believe that no student, regardless of their family's financial situation, should be denied a Catholic education.  It is the goal of Saint Joseph's to work with each family to provide an affordable Catholic education to those who are seeking this opportunity for their child.

Current Tuition Rates
Click here to view current tuition rates. Saint Joseph’s Catholic Academy requires that all tuition payments are made through STS (Simple Tuition Solutions).

Need-based Financial Assistance
Saint Joseph's Catholic Academy has partnered with Simple Tuition Solutions (STS) to determine eligibility for need-based, tuition assistance. To be considered for tuition assistance, parents/guardians of new and current students must

  • Complete the online STS financial assistance application
  • Submit all required, supportive documentation
  • Payment of a nonrefundable $25 application fee

Further, in order for your student's financial assistance to be awarded, all FinalSite enrollment checklist items (except for tuition contract submission) must be completed.

To learn more about the STS process, click on the orange "Download STS Instructions" link below.  To begin the STS application, click on the orange "Log In STS" link to navigate directly to the the online STS system.  If needed, our school code is 20446.  Financial assistance awards are general announced in June.

Thanks to the generosity of donors, students, and families within the Saint Joseph's Catholic Academy community, Saint Joseph's is able to offer need-based and merit-based scholarships to qualified incoming and returning students.

Special Circumstances
We recognize some families may have special circumstances that are not accounted for in the Simple Tuition Solutions application. In these cases, after the parent/guardian completes the STS application and submits any required documentation, we ask that a parent set up a personal consultation to discuss the family's needs and the development of a personalized tuition plan.

To schedule a personal consultation about tuition assistance, please contact Mrs. Anna Rupprecht, Saint Joseph's Principal, at or 814-808-6118.

How Is Financial Assistance Made Possible?
Tuition assistance is made possible through generous donations, the EITC contributions of local businesses, and named scholarships. Please contact school office at or 814-808-6118  if you would like information on how to participate in these programs.
