The Mission of Presentation School’s Tuition Assistance Program is to assist parish families who are unable to afford the full cost of tuition.
Presentation School Advisory Council's Finance Committee has set guidelines for the allocation of tuition grants. The maximum income level to be eligible for assistance will be set annually based on the San Joaquin County’s medium income figures. Families desiring tuition assistance must make application each year before April 15 for the following year. The completed application must be submitted directly to TADS (Tuition Assistance Data Services), the company processing aid applications for the diocesan schools. It is the report received by the school from this company that is used to review possible tuition assistance to families from school funds. No family can be given a full tuition grant. However, consideration for partial assistance is given according to the needs of each family applying. After processing, applicants are informed of the amount for which they are eligible. If a family receives tuition assistance, tuition must be paid on time or the assistance may be revoked. Families receiving tuition assistance are expected to fulfill the forty hour requirement and in addition be actively involved in at least one other parish ministry.
Criteria to be considered when determining need:
Registered, active parishioner status
Involvement in school/parish activities
Degree of need determined by TADS (this is based on present income, employment status, assets, debt, and number of children in private school)
The Diocese of Stockton, through SEEDS, also provides limited tuition assistance for low income families with students in diocesan schools. All families that submit the TADS application will be considered for these funds.
