Tuition Assistance


Anyone who is interested in tuition assistance (Grades K-8) at Montini Catholic School for the 2019-2020 school year must go through a 2 step process: . Apply through Empower Illinois . Apply through FACTS

Please remember that the money for tuition assistance from FACTS comes from the Montini coffers. FACTS does not award any funds; they merely evaluate for need and give us their recommendations. Also, if a family receives the maximum award using the FACTS recommendation, the highest amount given is at 50% tuition. The other 50% will remain your responsibility.

The last date to file is Tuesday, April 30, 2019. You must be certified by your pastor as eligible for the Participating Parish Rate to receive any tuition assistance. There are about eight weeks in which to file for tuition assistance. I will send out weekly reminders until that time. However, it is the obligation of the parents to file before the deadline. No tuition assistance will be given to anyone who does not file this form. Filing by the April 30th date will enable us to determine if your family has received any tuition assistance before the end of the current school year. The procedure to apply is as follows:

1. Go to 2. Go to the Admissions tab 3. Click on Tuition Information 4. Scroll down to Tuition Assistance Please call me at 815-385-1022 if you have any questions about this process. Remember all applications must be done on-line and submitted by April 30th.
