St. Pius X Scholarships
Information / Application
St. Therese Parish will continue to offer a needs based scholarship for parishioners who attend St. Pius X High School however there will be a change for the coming school year.
Part of the application process has been to complete a FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment application through St. Pius X High School. Only families that qualify for the FACTS Grant will be eligible for the St. Therese Scholarship.
Please note that St. Pius X continues to offer scholarships of $1,000 to:
a–active tithing parishioners;
b–legacy students (children of alumni);
c–families with more than one student at the school.
St. Pius X also offers discounts for families with four or more children. This in addition to the memorial, academic and needs based scholarships that the school also makes available.
To qualify for the St. Therese Scholarship a family will:
1–Be paid or current on any fees at St. Therese School.
2–Have a 2017 parish commitment card on file with that commitment either paid or current.
3–Have a 2018 parish commitment card on file with parish. You may also make your commitment at: www.sttheresenorth.org
4–Complete a FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment application through St. Pius X High School with all the appropriate accompanying forms (i.e., W-2, 1090, etc.) and authorize that report to be released to St. Therese Parish. The deadline for the FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment application is December 15, 2017.
5–Submit a hand written, one page essay by each student entitled, Why the Sunday celebration of the Eucharist is important.
Scholarships may be awarded up to $1,500 per student. Again families must qualify for the FACTS financial aid to be eligible for this scholarship. The deadline for this is 4:00 P.M. January 16, 2018. Scholarships will be awarded by February 16, 2018.
Please note, if you do not qualify for financial aid and do not think your child will be able to attend St. Pius X without additional help, you are welcome to visit with a subcommittee of our Parish Finance Council to discuss your situation.
Thank you for your ongoing commitment to Catholic education.
