Catholic School Awaken Greatness

There's a Place for Your Child

Welcome Tuition Grants up to $1,500 available.

At Catholic school, our mission is to awaken the God-given greatness in each child by teaching to the heart as well as the mind. We created the Welcome Tuition Grant program to bring this mission to as many children as possible. These grants are available to any public, private (non-Catholic) or home school student who transfers into one of the participating Archdiocese of Omaha Catholic schools listed below.

Welcome Tuition Grant Details

  • Dispersed over the course of two years: $1,000 in year one and $500 in year two*
  • Available in select schools and grades for new students entering first through seventh grade from March 15, 2017 to August 18, 2017*
  • Awarded per student, so a family with multiple qualifying children may receive multiple grants*
  • On average, the grant for year one represents a 30-40% tuition discount
