Catholic education is a blessing that we strive to make available to every family in the Archdiocese of Washington that desires a Catholic education for their child.
Archdiocese of Washington Catholic schools work hard to keep Catholic education as affordable as possible, and partners with other entities that help families afford a Catholic education.
Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Washington continue to accept applications for admissions, tuition assistance and financial aid. Please contact the school directly to learn more about tuition assistance and financial aid options.
All tuition assistance obtained through the archdiocese is based on financial need. Families must apply each year to receive assistance and need must be demonstrated each year to qualify. Applying for tuition aid has no bearing on whether a student is admitted to a school.
Email any questions to [email protected].
The Archdiocesan Tuition Assistance Program is available for students in grades PreK-12 who are applying to or currently enrolled in Catholic schools within the Archdiocese of Washington (Washington, DC and Calvert, Charles, St. Mary’s, Montgomery and Prince George’s counties in Maryland).
The Mother Catherine Spalding School Legacy Scholarship is a scholarship designated for parishioners who choose to send their child to a local Catholic elementary school. It is made possible through the Mother Catherine Spalding School Endowment and the generosity of the five parishes associated with Mother Catherine Spalding School.
The Fitzgerald Program is a scholarship designated for Catholic and non-Catholic students who demonstrate leadership qualities and are also in need of financial assistance to help defray the cost of their Catholic high school tuition. Awarded annually, the Fitzgerald Program awardees are selected based on their demonstrated commitment to lead in their high school, community and/or parish. The Fitzgerald Program award is a one-year scholarship. Awardees may apply for consecutive awards.
