Families seeking tuition assistance must fill out a tuition assistance form after completing the application and enrollment process. To apply for tuition assistance, you will need to complete an application through your students TADS enrollment database.

These applications should be completed by March 15th.
Please note that to be considered for the AIM Higher grants of $1,000 your application must be completed by March 1st. AIM Higher uses the same Tads application, so to be considered, you merely need to indicate your request by checking the box as part of the application process.
AIM Higher Summer Application
We are excited to announce that the Aim Higher summer scholarship application cycle is now open! With this additional round of funding, Aim Higher will be supporting over 2,300 students in the Archdiocese!Priority for the second round scholarships will go to applications from families who are new to Catholic schools. Applications will be looked at, especially those with extenuating circumstances, but new families will be prioritized. Here are a few things to know:
- The TADS application is now open and closes on August 11.
- For any family who completed an application after the first deadline (February 22) to be considered, you will need to go back into TADS and update your application.
- If a family applied for tuition assistance during the first cycle (prior to Feb. 22) and you were not awarded a scholarship, you are not eligible to be reconsidered during this round unless there has been a change in circumstance.
If you haven’t completed your tuition assistance application yet – do so now to be considered for these scholarships. You may find the tuition assistance application at www.mytads.com
The Pioneer Foundation is another option to help parents fund school tuition. (Some families receive entirely-funded annual tuition in this way.) Family members work at concession stands at various metro sporting venues (Target Field, the Excel Center, etc.) and are paid a rate + commission, with the dollars directed to the school for tuition.
