St. Andrew’s R. C. Church has limited financial assistance available for those parish families that otherwise could not afford to have their children attend St. Andrew’s Country Day School. This is funded by the Msgr. Graeber Scholarship Fund and the parish offertory (Commitment to Parish Life).
Families applying for parish financial assistance must meet the following criteria:
√Registered as parish members
√Regular participation in the sacraments and Sunday Liturgy.
√Be participants in the “Commitment to Parish Life” offertory program
√Apply for BISON Fund application prior to application.
√Supply prior year federal income tax return.
√Participate as a bingo volunteer.
√Participate in school fundraisers.
√Participate in FACTS Tuition Management Program and keep current with payments due.
The BISON Fund application can be obtained online at buffalodiocese.org and the school office. Financial assistance awards are subject to adjustment once all aid has been determined e.g. BISON Fund.
Those families eligible for the Catholic Tuition Grant Program (CTGP) will pay the same tuition as St. Andrew’s families. CTGP applies if you’re a member in good standing of a Catholic parish in the Diocese of Buffalo that does not have a parish school. If you are eligible for CTGP funding then any additional financial assistance would come from your home parish.
If you do not need financial assistance and want to help other families, donations to the Msgr. Graeber Scholarship Fund are always welcomed and needed.
