Tuition and Assistance FAQs

Tuition assistance can only be determined by completing a financial profile on a third-party service. 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.
 
The online tuition assistance application will be provided to prospective and current families. In order to fill out the application, you will need a complete copy of this year’s or last year’s IRS Form 1040, your current W-2’s and your current PA-40 or utility bill.
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 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.
 
Note: When you submit your STS Tuition Assistance Application, you are automatically considered for these tuition assistance funds. If you receive any of these funds, you will be notified in April. 
Families are strongly encouraged to apply for assistance by March 1. Families may apply after March 1, however, we cannot guarantee tuition assistance since funds will diminish and may not be available at a later date.
 
Delone Catholic High School makes every effort to notify you of tuition assistance decisions as soon as possible after the submission of your application. Any tuition assistance awarded will be applied directly to your account.
We understand that hardships can occur. A parent can be laid off, lose a job, or encounter unexpected medical expenses. If your family experiences at least a 10 percent decrease in income, please notify the School's administration who will review your eligibility for additional assistance.
