Catholic grant- $1500 Catholic Tuition Grant with Parish Verification

To be eligible for the Catholic grant, the student must be in grades k–8 (pre-k students are not eligible for this grant), be active in a Catholic parish, attend mass weekly, and participate in the life of the community of faith. In order to maintain the highest standards in our school and to keep our tuition affordable, each school family that is registered at St. Mary’s Church of Piscataway is required to attend mass and make use of the weekly contribution envelopes provided by the parish. A family that is registered at another Catholic parish must fill out a Catholic parish verification form, have it signed by their pastor, and submit it with your application. In addition, the following criteria must be met:

  • Student has Catholic baptismal certificate.
  • Family is registered, contributing, and active in a Catholic parish in the Archdiocese of Washington.
  • A Catholic parish verification form has been submitted, confirming that you are an active, registered, and contributing member.
