Along with the sliding scale tuition based on income, the combined financial support of our Catholic parishes and the BCACS Foundation make it possible for all families to choose Catholic education.
Although tuition continues to be an excellent value, we realize that it may put a strain on some families' budgets. In order to assist families in providing for a Catholic school education, additional tuition assistance is available.
Parents seeking tuition assistance must complete a PSAS (Private School Aid Service) Application annually. Current families must submit the completed application by April 15 of the previous school year, including the required documents to verify income, and a $25 non-refundable fee payable to the Private School Aid Service Program. Families who are new to BCACS must complete the process by April 15, 2013. The application process is not intended to intimidate, rather, it ensures that the amount of aid given to each family is objective and that as many eligible students as possible receive help. Tuition assistance applications are available on this web page and in the BCACS Administrative Office. Families currently receiving tuition assistance must reapply annually for consideration.
Using the results of the submitted PSAS Application as a guide, the Battle Creek Area Catholic Schools Foundation oversees the distribution of scholarship funds from selected endowment funds, and designated donor funds. You may download the application to fill out at home or follow these instructions to fill it out online.
