ARCHDIOCESAN TUITION ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

All tuition assistance obtained through the archdiocese is based on financial need.  Families must apply each year to receive assistance and need must be demonstrated each year to qualify.  Each family applying for tuition assistance from the Archdiocese of Washington is required to complete a TADS Financial Aid & Assessment form.  FromSeptember 30, 2013 through December 6, 2013, families may apply for tuition assistance.  The application may be completed either online or in paper format.  Paper applications can be obtained from the school office.  Families applying for financial aid only need to complete one form for all children, whether elementary school students or high school students, even if seeking tuition aid for children in both schools.

VOLUNTEERS

Per the Archdiocese of Washington, parents are not permitted past the school office, except for social functions, without being in compliance.  Each year the rules and requirements have become more stringent.  Please make the appropriate arrangements to fulfill this requirement so you can enjoy your child’s time here in the Archdiocese of Washington and at Holy Cross.  Forms can be obtained through the office.  This includes chaperoning for field trips, reading journals, assisting at lunch and recess, or any volunteer position in the school.  These are required by the Archdiocese and it is for your child’s protection and safety.

Please contact the school office with any questions.
