Tuition Assistance

SJA Tuition Assistance Fund (TAF)

SJA is committed to making Catholic education attainable for families who wish to have their child attend Catholic school but may find the full cost of tuition a struggle. In the summer of 2017, the SJA TAF was established. We are proud of the money raised that allows us to help parents provide the Catholic education they desire for their child/ren. Students must show financial need and good citizenship.  An application can be made at any time for consideration. Please contact Mrs. Hurley at to arrange an appointment to discuss your unique situation with the principal.
