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.

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 and submit all required, supportive documentation by May 7, 2021.  Further, STS requires payment of a nonrefundable $25 application fee in order to process your application.

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

Saint Isidore Scholarship

The students of Saint Joseph's Catholic Academy established the Saint Isidore Student-to-Student Scholarship for their fellow students.  All new and returning students are eligible to apply for this scholarship, which is applied to the awarded student's technology fee.  Students must submit an application to be considered for this award.  To learn more about the application and due dates, click the button below.

Special Circumstances
We recognize some families may have special circumstances that aren’t accounted for in the Simple Tuition Solutions application. In these cases, the Saint Joe’s Business Manager can works directly with a family on a personalized tuition plan, after the parent/guardian completes the STS application and submits any required documentation.

Personal Consultation
Families have an opportunity for a personal consultation about tuition assistance by scheduling an appointment with Mrs. Katie Sosnoskie, the Saint Joseph's Business Manager.  She can be reached at or 814-808-6118 ext. 301.

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 Ms. Jennifer Mallett, Head of School, at or 814-808-6118  if you would like information on how to participate in these programs.
