The Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) is designed for students currently enrolled or preparing to enroll in one of the Central Washington Catholic schools. Learn more below.

The Central Washington Catholic Foundation increases access to Catholic schools in Central Washington by providing tuition assistance grants to children and families based on family income. Tuition assistance grants help open the door to an excellent Catholic education in partnership with the family and their Catholic school.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to contact the school and request a referral before completing the FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment. All awards are made based on financial need.

Applications will not be considered complete until all required documents (tax forms, letters, referrals, child support statements, etc.) have been uploaded to their account by FACTS (process requires up to two weeks following submission). Applications will continue to be accepted until funding is depleted.

Applicants and the schools will be notified of the funding determinations. School officials will verify enrollment in October and the funding will be forwarded directly to the school.
