Tuition Assistance

St. Dunstan Catholic School Funds

The Tuition Assistance Program at St. Dunstan Catholic School is designed to help families who are unable to meet the financial obligation of full tuition and fees; and who have demonstrated a financial need. Tuition assistance is given to a qualified family in need for a one-year period and must be renewed each year.

St. Dunstan School along with the Archdiocese of San Francisco and the other schools in the Diocese are using TADS (Tuition Aid Data Services) to process financial aid applications. The application process is fair and confidential. Financial aid awards are made based on a family’s demonstrated need and the availability of St. Dunstan School funds.

All families that would like to be considered for financial assistance for the 2023-2024 school year must complete the TADS online financial aid application. Applications must be submitted by April 15, 2024 with all necessary documentation. Financial aid cannot be considered without the application through TADS.

BASIC Fund is a privately funded program dedicated to broadening the educational opportunities for children by helping low-income families afford the cost of tuition at private schools. Grant amounts are based on household size and income. Scholarships are up to a maximum of $2200 per child.

The BASIC fund is intended as a “Helping Hand” for children enrolling into a private school for the first time. The BASIC Fund forms a partnership with parents in the education of their children and expects parents to be actively involved with the schools and their children.
