Through the generosity of our benefactors and the success of our annual fundraisers, Carondelet has been able to provide tuition assistance to many young women who would otherwise not have the opportunity to attend Carondelet. This year, Carondelet is providing almost 25% of the student body with tuition assistance which amounts to approximately $1,280,000.

Tuition assistance is awarded to families who demonstrate financial need. Many families who send their daughters to Carondelet High School make financial sacrifices. The Tuition Assistance Program is designed to help those families that even with their sacrifices, need help in meeting their financial obligations.

Carondelet has partnered with FACTS to assist with information gathering and the assessment of tuition assistance. FACTS will provide an independent and reasonable assessment of the ability of each family to pay tuition. FACTS does not make any decisions about recipients and the amounts of financial aid awarded. Recipients and amounts of aid are determined by Carondelet’s Tuition Assistance Committee.

In completing your FACTS application, you are also eligible to apply to Family Aid - Catholic Education (FACE). In order to be considered, you will need to check a box to authorize FACE to receive your application. FACE provides need-based tuition grants to students who attend Catholic schools in the Diocese of Oakland. FACE helps students regardless of religion, gender, ethnicity, or citizenship. See more information about and begin applying for FACE. Any tuition assistance provided by FACE would be independent of and in addition to aid awarded by Carondelet. You may contact FACE directly with any questions about their program.

Bay Scholars is an additional source of assistance for incoming freshman, low income families. View income requirements and begin your application at the Bay Scholars website. The deadline for their application is January 31, 2020. Please contact Bay Scholars directly with any questions on their process.
