This year, the Office of Catholic Schools is excited to announce the availability of additional financial assistance through the newly established Scholarship Granted Organization (SGO): Good Samaritan Scholarship Fund. To apply for tuition assistance for the 2023-24 school year, families must use the FACTS tuition management system to complete the application at https://online.factsmgt.com/aid. The application period is from December 1st through March 1st with the awards announced in early May.
As a result of legislation passed in 2021, Ohio taxpayers who wish to support Catholic education in Ohio now have the opportunity to receive an income tax credit. Donations receive by December 31, 2023 will be used to fund tuition assistance for the 2024-2025 school year. Give online today!
Donations to the Good Samaritan Scholarship Fund will be utilized to award scholarships to students attending Catholic schools in the Diocese of Youngstown with a priority to support low-income families that seek high quality educational opportunities for their children.
