Tuition Assistance

It’s our commitment to ensure that a Catholic education at St. Mary Magdalen Catholic School is within reach for all families. Each year, the school conducts a thorough evaluation of School Tuition Assistance applications. Grants awarded to students may vary yearly based on demonstrated need. Families must reapply each year to confirm their level of need.

To be considered for a School Tuition Assistance grant, parents must complete a FACTS Tuition Assistance application. SMM uses the FACTS application to process the information provided and to keep parent information confidential.

In addition to School Tuition Assistance grants, families may also be eligible for financial assistance through the Seattle Archdiocese Fulcrum Foundation. The Fulcrum TAP is a deadline-based and need-based tuition assistance program for students in Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Seattle. To be considered for the Fulcrum TAP, families must be members of St. Mary Magdalen Catholic Church, have an active pledge card on file and complete an application through FACTS.
