Every Catholic family must be “affiliated” with their home parish to receive the Catholic-Affiliated tuition rate. In order to be considered “affiliated” with your home parish, a Catholic family must be registered with the parish, participate in the worship and life of their parish on a regular basis and financially support the parish. The affiliation will be verified with the local parishes to determine whether a family is eligible for Catholic-Affiliated tuition.

Since the stability of our school and the quality of its programs are of the utmost importance, we are always seeking ways to make improvements to benefit everyone. After much research and investigation, we have partnered with FACTS Management Company to help us manage our tuition payment program and financial aid assessment. FACTS is used by many schools locally and over 6,500 schools nationally. We are excited to be working with them and are confident this program will offer greater efficiency and financial stability for the school while providing convenience to families.
One of our primary goals this year at St. Francis de Sales Catholic Academy is to concentrate our efforts on improving the business side of our school. By taking advantage of the security and convenience of payment processing and information technology offered by FACTS, we remain committed to this goal. Tuition payments for the 2018-2019 school year can be paid online, by phone, or by mail. You may also sign up for auto pay as well. Only in an emergency will payment be accepted in the school building and/or rectory.
For those families that have an Invoice Payment Plan, each month, 20 days before your payment due date, FACTS will send you an email or mail invoice letting you know that your invoice is ready. If you want to mail in a payment, you will need to log into their FACTS account and click on the Actions button and choose the Mail In a Payment link.

The Columbus Citizens Foundation’s Elementary School Scholarship Program was established in 2003 at the directive of past Foundation President Lawrence Auriana and was implemented by former board member Richard J. Naclerio. The grants are available to students who will be entering grades K through 8. The grants, while generous, provide assistance towards tuition but will not cover payment for all school costs.
If you are interested in applying for a grant, please take a moment to learn about our requirements and the grant process.
- Students who are of Italian descent (at least 25% Italian)
- Students who show academic promise
- Households where the total gross income does not exceed $20,000 per capita ($20,000 per person in the household) are eligible. For example, for a household of four, the maximum total gross income is $80,000 to be eligible.
- Only students entering grades K through 8 are eligible to apply.
- To be considered for a CCF elementary scholarship, an online application and supporting documentation must be submitted by the deadline that contains detailed and confidential personal information. It must be submitted online to FACTS, an independent financial review company that will determine eligibility based on financial documentation.
- The CCF Elementary Scholarship Committee reviews and evaluates the applications.
- The Committee invites select applicants and their families to visit the Foundation for a mandatory interview (April/May).
- Approximately one month after all interviews have been held, the committee decides which applicants will be awarded scholarships.
- Parents/Guardians/Applicants are notified by mail of the committee’s decision.
Recipients receive three-year grants, with the exception of when a recipient is entering 7th or 8th grade, in which the grant is then two years or one year in length, respectively. In the final year of a grant term, parents/guardians can re-apply to the Elementary School Scholarship Program to receive future scholarships. For example, if an incoming Kindergartener is awarded, parents/guardians would re-apply for a future scholarship when the recipient is in 2nd grade.
NOTE: CCF scholarships are partial scholarships and will not cover all tuition costs.
How To Apply
The scholarship application process is now OPEN for the 2019-2020 academic year. Please read all instructions before applying. The application deadline is Friday, February 15, 2019.
