Tuition Assistance

Hope for the Future

Blessed Sacrament Catholic School, along with other Catholic Schools in the Archdiocese of San Antonio, collaborate with Hope for the Future in providing tuition assistance to those with identified financial need.  Hope for the Future is responsible for accepting and reviewing applications, determining financial scholarship amounts, and communicating program requirements directly with applications.

If you have questions regarding Hope for the Future, please contact their office at (210) 734-2620 or hopeforfuture@archsa.org.

The Kremer Foundation

Blessed Sacrament Catholic School continues our partnership with the Kremer Foundation.  Since 1985, The George and Mary Kremer Foundation has been committed to providing Catholic elementary schools in the continental United States with tuition assistance grants for children from financially challenged families.

Applications are now being accepted for the 2023/2024 school year.  Qualifying families must have had a 2022 maximum family income limit of $57,409 for a household of four (4) or less as increased by $9,765 for each additional family member over the number of four (4) residing in the household.

Interested families must complete the following 2023 2024 Student Grant Parent Form and return it with their 2022 Federal Income Tax Form 1040 showing the awarded child(ren) as a dependent or dependents. If an IRS 1040 Form is not available, then a family may provide an official document verifying eligibility for welfare and/or food stamps or a Social Security Form 1099 or some type of equivalently verifying social security income.

The 2023 2024 Student Grant Parent Form and supporting documentation are due to the School Office by Friday, May 12, 2023.  This will give me the opportunity to verify the income and submit the application to the Kremer Foundation.

Please do not hesitate to contact me at michael.fierro@blessedschool.com should you have any questions regarding the Kremer Foundation tuition assistance application.

The Luna Program 

Blessed Sacrament will use FACTS Tuition Management to process tuition assistance applications.  This will allow an independent, third-party vendor, to assess a family’s financial needs.  FACTS Tuition Management does charge $35.00 for the application fee.  Blessed Sacrament does not receive this payment, it is rather the application processing charge assessed by FACTS Tuition Management.

The online application does require families to submit their 2022 tax documents as part of the application process.  FACTS Tuition Management uses application information and tax documents to calculate a financial need.  I have added, however, two open-ended questions that allow families to provide additional information that might not be included in the application.

Families who applied with Hope for the Future in the Spring of 2023 will not need to re-apply for this program since their application is already in the FACTS Tuition Management system.

Those interested in applying for tuition assistance may visit Blessed Sacrament’s Grant & Aid Financial Needs Assessment platform.  Currently, families may sign in using their current credentials.  New families seeking enrollment at Blessed Sacrament will need to register for a username and password before completing the application.
