Grant & Aid

Grant & Aid

The deadline for applying to FACTS is February 28. It is understood and appreciated the financial commitment and sacrifice families undertake in deciding to send their children to a Catholic school. And although paying for education is first and foremost the responsibility of a family, each school, parish and the Archdiocese of Baltimore devote significant funds each year to financial aid programs that help assist families. In turn, our school communities benefit by attracting students that otherwise would not be able to attend our schools.

FACTS

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 need apply only once for possible support from these various sources. 

Preschool Aid

We accept government vouchers for our Preschool program! However, there is not additional financial aid provided for Pre-K.

GB Charities
GB Charities believes that education is a critical component to reaching one’s potential. Too often, children in our surrounding communities are confronted with huge obstacles and have few opportunities to succeed. Loving, hardworking parents are confronted with challenges that make it nearly impossible to oversee their child’s quality education.  At GB Charities, we have made it our mission to raise money to give these children an education in a safe, supportive environment in which to learn.
