We are aware that many families make serious financial sacrifices to ensure that their children receive a first-class education.

Tuition Assistance / Financial Aid Programs
Any family who is able to demonstrate financial need becomes eligible for financial assistance. Awards are determined through an application process in which F.A.C.T.S. evaluates the degree and extent of family need.
School-Based Aid is distributed to families who demonstrate financial need through the F.A.C.T.S. application process. Awards vary depending upon available fund, number of applications, etc.
Bishop's Education Fund
This is an endowed fund through the Bishop's Education Foundation. Interest earned on the principle balance of this fund will be distributed each year for education grants. In order to receive a grant, financial needs must be demonstrated through application to F.A.C.T.S. For 2017-18, several Bishop Canevin Catholic students active in a diocesan parish were awarded scholarships through the Bishop's Education Fund. Scholarships averaged over $350 per student.
The pastor's signature, acknowledging active enrollment in a diocesan parish, is required on the F.A.C.T.S. application for those who wish to receive a grant from the Bishop's Education Fund.
The Education Improvement Tax Credit (E.I.T.C.)
A state program established by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania which allows businesses to contribute state tax dollars to establish scholarship fund. The Diocese of Pittsburgh has established the S.O.S. Fund which distributes E.I.T.C. and O.S.T.C. scholarship to families of need without regard to race, color, sex, religion, or national origin. Interested applicants must demonstrate need within the salary limits specified. Application through Private School Aid Service must be made.
The Opportunity Scholastic Credit Program (O.S.T.C.)
Similar to the E.I.T.C. program, the O.S.T.C. program was established by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to assist those families residing within the boundaries of "low-achieving" schools in the bottom 15% of achievement as determined by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. Parents must submit their PSAS Financial Aid application a copy of the letter received from their "low-achieving" public school district. (2017-18 low-achieving districts included Pittsburgh Public Schools and Carlynton School District)
E.I.T.C. and O.S.T.C. Grants Will Depend Upon Meeting Financial Guidelines and the Amount of Donations Received
