A Guide to Tuition and Assistance

Mission and Ministry

Delone Catholic High School exists to challenge students spiritually, academically, physically, socially and aesthetically within the traditions and teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. This challenge will inspire students to experience Jesus Christ personally and to “Be Doers of the Word.”

At Delone Catholic, that statement is not just our mission, it is our ministry. Through our rich spiritual environment, challenging academic curriculum and extensive extracurricular offerings, we seek to mold young adults into healthy, happy adults whose lives enrich their families, their Church and their communities. We firmly believe that Catholic education should be accessible to all families who wish it for their children. However, we understand that financial considerations make a Catholic education seem out of reach to some families. Therefore, we have established tuition assistance for families who need assistance to achieve the goal of Catholic education. Currently, about 17 percent of Delone Catholic families receive some tuition assistance, based on need as determined through an application process. All families wishing to apply for assistance must begin the process by completing the appropriate application based on their state of residence..

Tuition and Assistance FAQs

How much is the current tuition at Delone Catholic High School?
The Board of Directors strives to make a Catholic education affordable for all. The full cost to educate one student at Delone Catholic is $7,648 for the 2016-17 school year. With base tuition for 2016-17 set at $5,550 (see the tuition table for variants), every family actually receives some scholarship support even before applying for additional support. In 2015-16, over 25 percent of students received additional assistance. Supporting Catholic deanery parishes contribute over $633,000 annually thus providing scholarships for every student and family. The amount of this support is more for parishioners of these parishes. We encourage Maryland families to seek assistance from their own parish.

How do I know if I am eligible for tuition assistance?
Tuition assistance can only be determined by applying to the FACTS service. FACTS is an objective and professional organization that specializes in student aid analysis using federal methodology. Delone Catholic uses the services of FACTS to assist us in determining the assistance amount for each family. After examining each family situation, a decision is made on eligibility for tuition assistance. Priority will be given to Catholic families who are registered in their Parish and actively participate in parish life.

How can I apply for tuition assistance?
Tuition assistance applications are available in the Business Office and will be posted on www.DeloneCatholic.org by Jan. 31. Both Pennsylvania and Maryland residents should complete the FACTS online application. In order to fill out the application, you will need a complete copy of this years’s or last year’s IRS Form 1040, your current W-2’s and your current PA-40 or utility bill. There is a processing fee of approximately $30 for this application. 

Where does tuition assistance come from and how much is available?
Tuition assistance provided by Delone Catholic High School comes from a variety of generous supporters, including local parishes, generous benefactors and the Neumann Scholarship Program. The Neumann Scholarship, administered by the Diocese of Harrisburg, uses Pennsylvania’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) funds; these funds in turn come from generous businesses who direct their tax dollars to provide tuition subsidies for our students. Only Pennsylvania residents are eligible for Neumann Scholarships. In addition to the Neumann Scholarships, Delone Catholic has 14 additional tuition assistance funds established by a variety of benefactors. Interest earned each year is given out in tuition assistance to both Pennsylvania and Maryland residents. In the 2015-16 school year, we awarded approximately $198,083 in tuition assistance.

Note: When you submit your FACTS, you are automatically considered for these tuition assistance funds. If you receive any of these funds, you will be notified by July 31. If you receive Neumann Scholarship funds, the Diocese will send a letter informing you of the Neumann Scholarship amount in mid-July.

When is the deadline to apply for tuition assistance?
The deadline to submit your FACTS application is April 15. In order to make sure that you are eligible for tuition assistance, you must meet all deadlines. After the deadline, we cannot guarantee tuition assistance since funds will diminish and may not be available at a later date.

When will I know if I receive tuition assistance?
The Diocese will inform you of Neumann Scholarship amounts in mid-July. Delone Catholic will contact you by letter by the July 31.

What if our financial situation changes after I apply for tuition assistance?
We understand that hardships can occur. A parent can be laid off, lose a job or encounter medical problems. If your family experiences at least a 10 percent decrease in income, write to the Finance Committee explaining the change in situation. The committee will review your eligibility for additional assistance.

Neumann Scholarships for Pennsylvania Families

The Diocese of Harrisburg, in response to the Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit Law (EITC), created the Neumann Scholarship Foundation. The EITC program provides tax credits to businesses that contribute to qualified scholarship organizations. The Neumann Scholarship Foundation has been approved by the State of Pennsylvania as a qualified scholarship organization. All scholarships offered by the Foundation are provided in accord with the laws governing this program.

Scholarships are offered to qualified students attending Catholic schools in the Diocese of Harrisburg, on a basis of need. In order to meet the state requirements, the scholarship organizations must demonstrate that families meet the state eligibility requirements. The Neumann Scholarship Foundation has contracted with FACTS Management to process the information provided by families applying for scholarships. FACTS will provide the Neumann Scholarship Foundation with a relative ranking of need among the eligible families. The Foundation will award scholarships on the basis of this information. Scholarships are available for grades Pre-Kindergarten to 12.

Tuition and Assistance for Maryland Families

Through the generosity of alumni, friends and other benefactors, Delone Catholic is able to offer need-based tuition assistance to families who cannot be awarded scholarships through the Diocese of Harrisburg's Neumann Scholarship Foundation. Tuition assistance can only be determined by completing an aid assessment.
