2016-2017 Tuition Assistance Program now online

The tuition assistance application for the 2016-2017 school year is now available on the Diocese of Gary website. Click the Tuition Assistance Application tab and you will be directed to the application. Parishes DO NOT have paper copies this year. If you require a paper copy, you must contact the Diocese of Gary Office of Catholic Schools and request a copy be mailed to you.

Catholic families who belong to a Diocese of Gary parish and have their children enrolled in any diocesan school, Kindergarten through Grade 12, may apply. Pre-school students are not eligible. A $30.00 nonrefundable processing fee must accompany the application and will be paid via credit card, debit card, or checking account online. Approximately $500,000 is distributed on the basis of need to assist Catholic parents in providing Catholic faith formation, strong academic programs, and safety for their children in our Catholic schools.

The filing deadline is Monday, February 22, 2016. This is the date that completed applications must be submitted online. PSAS will not accept any applications mailed directly to the company. This deadline will be strictly enforced. Parents will be notified of the results in writing by May, 2016.
