Tuition/Tuition Assistance

St. Pius X strives to admit all academically qualified students, regardless of their ability to pay, and is proud of the diversity of individuals within the student body. Approximately 30% of our students receive tuition assistance (this figure does not include scholarships received). A combination of merit and need-based assistance can significantly cover much of the tuition, so we encourage families to read all the information below.

St. Pius X Tuition Assistance Opportunities
St. Pius X High School utilizes the FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment application process for determining financial need in allocating tuition assistance. One completed application and one processing fee of $40 will automatically submit your application for tuition assistance to St. Pius X, the Archdiocese of Santa Fe, and the Catholic Foundation Committees. However, please note that the income tax requirements and application deadlines for these three tuition assistance opportunities are different. Contact each to find out further information.
A full-time employee of a Catholic School must apply in FACTS Grant & Aid to report your place of employment at an Archdiocese of Santa Fe school and have completed one year of employment to be eligible for the $1000 Catholic Employee Award. This award is given by St. Pius X.
