As we plan for the next school year, we want to apprise you of three different grant programs available to assist our SASEAS School families. It is the desire of both St. Andrew and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton parishes that any family who wants to send their children to our school is given every opportunity and as much aid as possible. We want every family to take advantage of the excellent Catholic education that we offer.
1) "One Faith, One Hope, One Love" Campaign: The newest program awarding grant money is a result of the recent Archdiocesan campaign and more information is available at:
Tuition support grants are awarded in $250, $500, $750, and $1000 per student amounts. Families must first apply for this support before seeking parish/school support. The initial deadline is January 31.
2) The tuition assistance program that is administered by SASEAS School awards approximately $20,000 annually to St. Andrew and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton parishioners. Contact the school principal for more information.
Application for both of these programs can be accessed through the school web site www.saseasschool.org by clicking on the FACTS link or by going directly to online.factsmgt.com/aid. FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment will be conducting the financial need analysis for SASEAS School and the Archdiocese of Cincinnati for the upcoming school year. Families applying for financial aid will need to complete an application and submit the necessary supporting documentation to FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment by the end of January.

3) The third program which offers assistance is the EdChoice Expansion Scholarship program administered by the State of Ohio. This award is based on the number of people in your household and your gross annual income. A family of four qualifies if their gross annual income was $48,600 or less.
To determine if you might qualify for this program please contact Mrs. Sandy Reed at the Seton Campus or Mr. Wilburn. We will alert all families when this application process opens. If you would like to explore this option online you may do so at: education.ohio.gov/edchoice.
We have much to be thankful for and we at SASEAS School are ever thankful for the enriching presence of your children and your family in our school and in our parishes.
