St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic School uses FACTS Management to process monthly tuition payments.
In 2010, the Diocese began using FACTS to administer their financial aid applications. This has become very important with the establishment of the Charles and Elaine Sammons Tuition Assistance Fund. This fund was established for the purpose of providing tuition assistance to parents who desire to educate their children in a Catholic elementary and/or secondary school owned and operated by the Diocese of Dallas or one of its parishes. Our families could be eligible to receive some assistance from this fund.
At St. Thomas Aquinas, using FACTS eases the financial aid process for our families. Now, by completing one application, you are evaluated to determine your level of need for both the STA school funds and the Sammons Tuition Assistance Funds.
For the St. Thomas Aquinas funds, the requirements have not changed. As indicated on the tuition rate card, tuition assistance is available on a limited basis for families who are registered, contributing members of the parish for at least one year. (Please contact the Parish Office to determine your parisioner status.) In order to qualify for assistance, a completed form must be submitted online by March 31. Note that before your form can be considered complete, you must have submitted your completed most recent year's tax return.
Note that applications will only be accepted ONLINE. (Please contact Renee Hayes at the school office if you have any questions about completing an online application. 214-826-0566)
Please contact Vicki Ryan at the church office with any questions about the general financial aid application process. 214-821-3360.
