Tuition & Financial Aid

Tuition & Financial Aid



Tuition for the 2018-2019 school year is $5900.00 for students in Grade K - 8.  There is a 5% discount for the second child and a 10% discount for the third and subsequent children in the family. Families pay their tuition directly to APS which is the company we contracted to provide billing services. There are several different payment options.  A tuition agreement is part of the packet given to parents at the time of registration. The registration fees for the 2018-2019 school year are: $125.00 for the first child; $115.00 for the second child; $100.00 for the third child with a maximum of $340.00 per family.


Scholarships & Tuition Assistance

GWCRS offers several scholarships and provides some tuition assistance to families who qualify.  Any family that wants to be considered for tuition assistance from the GWCRS, the Diocese of Providence or many parishes must fill out a FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment application by the required deadline.  New families will receive a FACTS informational packet when their child/children are accepted.  All present families receive FACTS information as part of their registration material in January.  All FACTS applications must be done on-line.


Parents and guardians are encouraged to submit the FACTS application by the initial deadline set by the Diocese of Providence for  consideration of aid; however, applications may still be submitted after the initial deadline.   The FACTS packet has information on how to submit all documentation that must be completed as part of the financial aid process.  Please contact a FACTS representative for questions or concerns.



Please note: FACTS only processes the applications they do not award any financial aid.


Parish Assistance

Several years ago, Bishop Louis Gelineau mandated that every parish must spend at least 7% of its gross annual income on tuition assistance for Catholic education. 

Some parishes have a set formula they follow in determining assistance, while others base their decisions on financial need and other mitigating circumstances. Many parishes require involvement in parish activities, financial support and regular Mass attendance of those families who desire financial aid. As each parish operates their subsidy program differently, we encourage parents to speak with their pastor about the criteria in their parish.


If you belong to a parish, please check with your pastor to see if they require a FACTS application to be considered for a parish subsidy.


Scholarships, Tuition Assistance and Parish Assistance  totaled over $168,000 for the 2017-2018 school year.
