Financial Aid

It is our belief that no family should be denied a Catholic education at Santa Teresita School due to financial circumstances. Therefore, we strive to make tuition affordable for all families. Depending on funds available for tuition assistance, the school makes every effort to support families who cannot pay the full tuition rate for their children.

Santa Teresita School accepts applications for the Catholic Education Foundation tuition awards program, as well as school-based and privately funded financial aid programs. All families who seek financial aid must complete an application and are encouraged to apply as early as possible. Santa Teresita School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, gender, religion, or national or ethnic origin in the awarding of financial aid. Applying for financial aid does not guarantee an award.

Catholic Education Foundation

DEADLINE: Parents must submit an application for this program to Santa Teresita School starting January 15 but no later than March 1. Late applications will not be accepted.

Families with children attending or seeking to attend Santa Teresita School may apply for need-based financial aid through the Catholic Education Foundation’s Tuition Awards Program (TAP). TAP is designed to assist students with tuition for enrollment in a Catholic school in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. The award partially offsets the cost of tuition.  Applicants must meet the Federal Income Guidelines for poverty to be eligible for TAP. All eligible families will be considered for tuition awards regardless of their ethnic or religious background. Applying for TAP does not guarantee an award. CEF may deny any application due to budget restraints.
