As a parent, you may not realize all the financial pathways available to make a Catholic education affordable. To many people’s surprise, the majority of Catholic school families receive some kind of financial assistance or tuition discount. Our goal is to make Catholic education affordable and accessible to all through an individualized approach that works for you.
SJ23 offers families a number of ways to manage and reduce tuition expenses. Families can spread tuition payments over a 10- or 11-month period, “bank” money for the following year’s tuition through our SCRIP program, and take advantage of the Wisconsin Private School Tuition Tax Credit. SJ23 also offers tuition assistance to families in need.
The Welcome Scholarship is a one-time, 15% discount (per child), given to any first-time families attending St. John XXIII Catholic School, or families returning to St. John XXIII Catholic School after a major absence (two or more years). The Welcome Scholarship is for students in K4 – 8th Grade.
FACTS Tuition Payment Program
FACTS is a national tuition management service that allows families to pay tuition and apply for tuition assistance. Families have the option of a full payment, a two-month, 10-month, or an 11-month payment plan. All families, including those who are part of the Tuition Assistance Program, must use this tuition payment program. Log in or learn more about FACTS.
Wisconsin Private School Tuition Tax Credit
In 2013, the Wisconsin Legislature approved a state budget bill (2013 Wisconsin Act 20), which established a tax deduction credit for private school tuition. Parents with dependent children in a private school are now able to receive a tax deduction for tuition. Click Here for the 2022 form.
