Financial Aid & Scholarships

FACTS Financial Aid application must be completed by any family seeking tuition assistance. 

 To apply for financial aid, please Click Here and follow the online directions. If you need help filing, contact FACTS Customer Care Representatives at 866-441-4637. Financial Aid is awarded to students K through 12th grade. Pre-K is not eligible for aid. When completing the application, you will be asked for the school name - please input Notre Dame Schools of Utica.

Our first and largest round of financial aid is TAP A, which is funded by the HOPE APPEAL. In order to be eligible for TAP A awards, families must complete their financial aid application and submit their supporting documentation to FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment by FEBRUARY 1st, 2024. Please note that financial aid applications must be submitted every year.

Supporting documentation must be scanned and uploaded on the FACTS website where requested. Supporting documentation should include:

· Copies of parent's 2023 tax return if available OR 2022 tax return – including all supporting tax schedules

· W-2s for the parent (and spouse if applicable) W2 should match the tax return being submitted.

· Copies of Social Security income, child support, food stamps, worker’s compensation and TANF (if applicable)

· Processing fee

The processing fee for each application is $35 per family. Once a parent applies, they can log into their FACTS account to check the status of their application, and FACTS will provide bi-weekly follow-up communication to parents if their application is incomplete. There is NO additional fee if parents have children in two or more schools of the Syracuse Catholic Diocese. An incomplete application cannot be processed.
