St. Sebastian Parish is firmly committed that no child of an active Parishioner will be denied a Catholic education at our Parish school due to a financial inability to pay tuition. Any Parish family that believes it may have difficulty meeting the tuition obligation for the 2017-2018 school year is encouraged to review the following procedures.
Any Parish family concerned about its financial ability to pay the full tuition must complete a Student Aid Form online. This form must be submitted to SMARTAID no later than March 1st, 2017. These forms will be assessed by SMARTAID to help determine a family’s ability to pay tuition. Click HERE to begin your application.
To learn more about the Student Aid Form and SMARTAID, please click HERE. If you have additional questions, please call Amy Sboray in our Parish School office at 330-836-9107 ext: 117.
If you would like to be considered for financial aid before your July 2017 payment, you must apply by March 1, 2017.
Once the results from SMARTAID have been returned to the Parish a determination on the level of assistance will be determined. The School Office will contact the Parent/Guardian with the outcome in a timely manner prior to the beginning of the new school year payment period.
