2021-2022 Diocesan Tuition Assistance Process is Open

For the 30th consecutive year, the Diocesan Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) is striving to keep Catholic school education affordable for Catholic families who desire it for their children but who may need some financial assistance to make that dream a reality. Thanks to the ongoing and genuine commitment of The Most Reverend Mark Brennan to the Catholic schools in our Diocese, funds have, once again, been allocated for distribution to Catholic families in need of financial assistance.

Applying for TAP through FACTS is easy and affordable. You are encouraged to apply if your child is already enrolled or has been accepted by one of the Catholic schools in the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston for the 2021-2022 school year.

Who is eligible?

Any Catholic student accepted for the 2021-2022 school year in any Diocesan Catholic school (PK thru grade 12) and who belongs to a parish included on the drop-down list as part of the on-line application is eligible. Determinations are based upon a family’s degree of need relative to all other applicants.

How do I apply?

Applications are made on-line. Go to, click on “Grant & Aid Assessment” and log in. If you do not have Internet access, contact your school office for assistance.


The application fee is $35. The Diocese will pay $17.50 and families pay the other $17.50.


Diocesan grants for Catholic families who have completed their applications and show financial need will receive up to 50% of the child’s tuition.

Immunization Requirements for 7th Graders

Students entering 7th grade must show proof of a booster dose of Tdap vaccine, which protects against tetanus, diphtheria, and pert.. (whooping cough) and a dose of the meningococcal vaccine.

Although Tdap and meningococcal shots are required for entry into seventh grade, they are recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) for adolescents beginning at age 11. Parents are encouraged to have their children immunized after they turn 11, rather than wait until right before the start of 7th grade to ensure that they are fully protected from these vaccine-preventable diseases throughout their adolescence.
