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 $35 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.
