As a school of the Diocese of St. Petersburg, we strive to keep a quality Catholic education affordable to all who wish to attend Tampa Catholic. Each year the school is able to provide a limited amount of need-based tuition assistance to our families.

Consideration for this assistance is available by completing the financial application with FACTS Grant Aid Assessment (FGAA) at www.factstuitionaid.com.
Please NOTE, assistance is on year to year basis. Each year that a family is seeking assistance, they must REAPPLY with FACTS here.
