Tuition Assistance Program
Seton Catholic Prep's financial aid budget helps to support roughly 50% of our student body. Financial aid awards are based on a family’s demonstrated need. Like most private schools, Seton Catholic employs School and Student Services (SSS) to help us make fair, objective financial aid decisions. This third-party assessment provides an estimate of the amount that each family can contribute towards a Seton education. Subsequently, we look closely at each individual case, taking into account extenuating factors. Please note:
- This application is for those fairly with extreme financial need.
- For last year's recipients and this year incoming freshmen - Applications and all supporting documents are due by March 31, 2016.
- If applying for need-based financial aid through SSS, it is required that you also submit a FAIR application to Catholic Education Arizona (CEA).
- We only accept online financial aid applications for the Tuition Assistance Program.
Please do not mail hard copies to Seton Catholic.

The financial needs of our families exceed our financial aid resources. Therefore, awards do not eliminate tuition payments for a family. There are very few exceptions to this rule, and recipients are typically designated by the donor of the financial aid funds. Families can also earn cash toward their tuition by purchasing SCRIP.
