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.

The tuition rates for 2022-23 are as follows:

Early Childhood Program Rate

Three Year Old $1500
Four Year Old $1800
Technology Fee (per family) $250


Family Rate (TK- Grade 8 Active Parishioner)

One Child $3900
Two Children $7000
Three or More Children $9500
Out of Parish/Non Catholic $5600
Two Children $9500
Technology Fee (per family) $250



(Parish bulletins, school & parish newsletters, school & parish websites, etc.)


For the 32nd 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 The Most Reverend 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 2023-2024 school year.


Who is eligible? Any student accepted for the 2023-2024 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


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.


Cost? The application fee is $35.  The Diocese will pay $17.50 and families pay the other $17.50.


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