At St. Michael’s, our goal is to provide students with a high-quality, well-rounded Catholic education at an affordable tuition rate. We understand, however, that every family has its own unique circumstances that come into play when selecting the right school for their children. Because we feel strongly that any parent who is interested in St. Michael’s should not be deterred from registering solely because of finances, we offer a Tuition Assistance Program to qualifying families.

  • All tuition payments must be made through the FACTS Tuition Management program. These payments can be made monthly, semi-annually, or annually.
  • A $250 Technology Fee per family is to be included with the registration form. This fee is non-refundable.
  • Tuition paid in full by August 5, 2024 will receive a 3% discount.

Parent Information Regarding Tuition Assistance

Families requesting tuition assistance must apply to PHASE 1 of the Diocese TAP program before applying for assistance through the parish/school.


For the 33rd consecutive year, the Diocesan Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) is striving to keep Catholic school education affordable for 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 Bishop Mark Brennan to the Catholic schools in our Diocese, funds have, once again, been allocated for distribution to 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 2024-2025 school year.

Who is eligible?

Any student accepted for the 2024-2025 school year in any Diocesan Catholic school (PK thru grade 12) is eligible. Determinations are based upon a family’s degree of need relative to all other applicants.
Phase I: open to Catholic families ONLY
Phase II: open to ALL families
Phase III: open to ALL families-intended for families new to the school or have had a life-changing event.

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 now $25.


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