Your child’s tuition is an investment that pays a lifelong dividend. We know that it isn’t easy for some families to afford tuition. Many parishes and schools have available resources to help families. Children may be eligible for two separate scholarship programs offered by the Diocese of Erie:
The Bishop’s Tuition Assistance Program and the STAR Foundation. You only need to apply once to be eligible for both scholarship programs. Approximately three million dollars was provided in scholarship assistance to families for the 2016-2017 school year.
