Tuition Assistance

Grant Program

If you are in the public school or transferring from a different Diocese, St. Joan of Arc offers a $1,500 grant option that incoming families can apply for.  If you are qualify, $1,000 will be discounted from your tuition the first year and $500 will be discounted from the second year of attendance.  To apply for this grant contact the school office at (630) 969-1732.

State

In August,  the “Invest in Kids Act” was signed into law in the State of Illinois. Scholarships offered through this program have the potential to cover up to 100 percent of tuition and fees for next school year for families that qualify.

Empower Illinois scholarship applications will now be made available to students and families  though  EmpowerIllinois.org

Depending on your household income, you may receive a full or partial scholarship to attend St. Joan of Arc.  There will be a limited number of scholarships available so applying as soon is allowed is very important.   Scholarships will be awarded on a first come, first served basis.

On Feb. 27 at 7:00 p.m. families will complete a brief online form containing name and contact information, child name and preferred school. This will time stamp your application for the first-come, first-served scholarships.

Apply: After reserving your place in line, families will be emailed a unique link and use their reservation code to complete the application. Applications will be sent on a rolling basis, over the course of a few weeks. After receiving the application email, families will have 3 days to complete the application and submit all required documents.

The goal with this two-step process is to make it easier for families and provide more time to ensure your application is accurate and complete.

There is a Catholic Schools Office website, www.weteachmore.org  established as the place where you will find the most update  information about the application process.  Contact the SJA school front office (630) 969-1732 for any  additional questions.
