To provide for equitable distribution of resources, we use a needs-based analysis to determine what your family can afford, taking into account such important factors as income, assets, cost of living, family size and siblings in tuition-charging schools. This analysis is done using the Tuition Aid Data Services (TADS) program. Once in TADS you will see the St. Patrick Catholic School Tuition Assistance Program. The school will make awards based on need as determined by TADS and the funding received from the Parish Bingo Ministry.
