Is financial aid available at Our Lady of Guadalupe School?
Who is eligible?
Students in grades K-8 attending or accepted by a school in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston.
Are PreK-3 and PreK-4 students eligible for tuition assistance?
Students in the Early Childhood Program are only eligible for tuition assistance through the Archdiocese if they have an older sibling in the elementary or middle school grades. Otherwise, they are not eligible to receive tuition assistance. Please note that these students are eligible and not guaranteed tuition assistance.
How do I apply for financial aid, and what determines the level of financial aid?
In order to be considered for financial aid each family must complete a PSAS (Private School Aid Service) application. Click here to access an application form. There is a $26 fee for each application. PSAS then ranks families based on need, and the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston then allocates funds to families.
Am I required to fill out a PSAS application?
No, families are not required to complete a PSAS form. However, neither the Archdiocese nor Our Lady of Guadalupe can grant ANY tuition assistance without an application on file with PSAS. Additionally, a $50 tuition discount will be given to families that have a PSAS application submitted and cleared by the due date.
When is the PSAS application due for the 2016-2017 school year?
Can I apply after the deadline?
Yes, families can still apply even after the deadline. However 90% of the funds available for tuition assistance are awarded to those qualifying families whose applications were received prior to the January 30th deadline.
