We are passionate about Catholic education and committed to help families in need of tuition assistance. Please let us know if we can be helpful in these processes. There are five primary sources of Financial Assistance for families:
EdChoice Scholarship by State of Ohio:
Since July of 2023, EdChoice has expanded its offering significantly to ALL families.
This Scholarship should be applied for as soon as enrollment is secured by ALL families and precedes all other scholarship opportunities.
Application instructions are here.
Angel Scholarship Fund
NEW Angel Scholarship Fund
St. Gabriel is very excited about this new opportunity for families. The application process is the same as above (FACTS application) plus this Angel Scholarship application. The first wave applications are due April 30. The second wave applications are due July 15 and final round are due August 15. Rounds 2 & 3 only take place if funds are still available. Please see below how YOU can help fund this scholarship by taking 5 minutes on your taxes. THIS IS NOT A DONATION.
Parish Assistance Directions:
Parish Assistance is available to families who are active parishioners of St. Gabriel, who first complete the FACTS application form (see below), and demonstrate a need for assistance. Junior Kindergarten students are not eligible for assistance. A critical consideration in the process of seeking tuition assistance is the involvement of the family in the Catholic Community of St. Gabriel. Only St. Gabriel registered and active parishioners will be considered for aid provided by the parish.
Diocesan Assistance Directions:
Diocesan Assistance is available to families, who first complete the FACTS application form (see below), and demonstrate a need for assistance. To qualify for Diocesan Aid, all FACTS applications must be submitted by March 15 (Round One) or by June 1 (Round Two). Tax returns used must be prior year that just ended of school start (i.e. 2022 would be used for 2023-24). Here documents:
There are many opportunities within the St. Gabriel Community and other entities that would like to help your family afford Catholic education. Here is a listing of scholarships and application processes.
