Tuition & Financial Aid
Investing in Your Child's Future
Thank you for considering a St. Maria Goretti Regional Catholic High School education for your student!
By choosing a Catholic school, a family is choosing to invest in a child's future. A future of college and career success, but more importantly the daily reminder to strive towards an eternal reward in heaven. With a reputation for being well-rounded and well-prepared, 100% of Goretti graduates are accepted into college, with 100% being accepted into one of their top three choices.
St. Maria Goretti Regional Catholic High School understands the financial commitment and sacrifice families undertake in deciding to send their children to a Catholic school. Although paying for education is first and foremost the responsibility of a family; schools, and parishes, as well as the Archdiocese of Baltimore, devote significant funds each year to financial aid programs that help assist families. In turn, our school community benefits by attracting students who otherwise would not be able to attend.

Archdiocese of Baltimore Tuition Assistance
Tuition assistance is a need-based analysis of the cost of education versus the family’s ability to pay for students in Kindergarten through 12th grade. These awards do not need to be repaid, and they generally come from two funding sources: the Partners in Excellence Program and the Archdiocese of Baltimore School Fund. Many parishes and schools offer their own tuition assistance for families; contact the office of your parish or school of choice to receive application procedures.
Any student interested in attending an Archdiocesan school may apply for Grant and Aid from the Archdiocese of Baltimore. Within the Archdiocese, however, the Grant and Aid provided will not total more than 25% of the total cost of tuition. It is the expectation that all families contribute to/participate in the educational investment in their children. In addition, it is our intention to provide assistance to as many families as possible, therefore the Archdiocese has set limits on per-child funding. Third parties not associated with the Archdiocese of Baltimore may provide assistance that exceeds 75% of the total tuition cost. These exceptions will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis by the school and the Archdiocese of Baltimore if Archdiocesan funding is involved and any necessary adjustments will be made by the School or the Archdiocese.
Financial aid awarded by the Archdiocese will be distributed under the following priorities:
Current recipients of financial aid
Financial need level of family
To help the Archdiocese objectively assess what a family is able to contribute to education expenses, a trusted third party (FACTS Management) is used. To learn more about FACTS and complete an application for financial aid, please visit online.factsmgt.com.
Completed applications must be received no later than February 28th. Tuition assistance awards are contingent upon a completed FACTS application, with all required documentation submitted on June 30th.
FACTS is the tuition management and grant and aid platform used by the schools in the Archdiocese of Baltimore. All families are asked to create an account with FACTS to manage their tuition payments. The grant and aid application is housed on the same platform for every school, parish, and the Archdiocese of Baltimore assistance. Therefore, a family needs to apply only once for possible support from these various sources. Read more information about FACTS.
Deadlines for Filing:
Families need to complete the FACTS Application Process by the last day in February in order to be eligible for an Archdiocesan tuition assistance award.
Families are encouraged to complete the FACTS Application Process by the last day in April in order to be eligible for a St. Maria Goretti tuition assistance award. Applications received after this date may not qualify for the maximum grant amount.
FACTS will process one application per household, and it must be done online. Faxed or copied applications will not be accepted.
