The Archdiocese is starting an exciting new tuition aid program for the 2017/18 school year.

Apply online at the OLL FACTS website https://online.factsmgt.com/signin/4HJ28. The Archdiocese will be awarding up to $1,000 per student based on financial need. Families will be notified in April, 2017 if they received an award from the Archdiocese and the amount.
