Parish Tuition Assistance – Application Open NOW

November 18, 2021

Saint Margaret Parish provides tuition assistance to eligible families for children attending our parish school from preschool through Grade 8. Families registered AND active in Saint Margaret Parish are eligible to apply for tuition grants. The parish defines “active families” as those that are part of this worshiping community by regularly attending Mass at Saint Margaret Parish. We do not provide tuition assistance to families registered and/or active in another parish, or for students attending other schools.

Applications Open: November 14, 2021  |  Last date to Apply: January 7, 2022 (application must be completed)

2020 tax information will be used

There is an online application to complete, and documents to review, as well as financial information to upload.  Please follow these steps:

  1. Apply online at https://www.solutionsbysss.com/.  At the top choose “Logins” then choose “For families”.  Please follow the instructions on the SSS website. Throughout the application, there are explanatory drop-down boxes if you have questions. You may also contact SSS for assistance at (800)-344-8328.  Please make sure that you fill out and sign the “Applicant’s Acknowledgement and Checklist.”  Your application will not be considered complete without it.

    SSS processes applications within a few days and makes a recommendation called “Expected Family Contribution”. The Parish Tuition Assistance Committee uses that as a baseline for making its determination, as well as Mass attendance. Please provide all explanations requested on the SSS application, and use the final comments area to describe any extraordinary circumstances your family has experienced in the last three years.

    Note that you will need to provide additional information if you own a business or farm.

  2. Your application will be considered complete when SSS provides the Expected Family Contribution AND when we receive all required documentation. The Tuition Assistance Committee will review your application and notify you of its decision.
