Financial Assistance

Saint Mary Financial Assistance image

Tuition Assistance is available for families who desire to provide their children with a Catholic Education and meet financial criteria. The Catholic Education Foundation, the Archdiocese of Louisville and our funding partners are growing to meet the needs of families who cannot afford the full cost of educating their children in a Catholic elementary school.


Thanks to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act which recently went into effect, 529s can be used for tuition at private K-12 education. Under this tax law, 529 plan holders can use up to $10,000 a year from the account to help cover the tuition costs of private K-12 education. This differs from the rules governing how 529 funds are used for higher education, which permits each parent (and grandparent) to save up to $15,000 in the plan without that money being taxed by Uncle Sam. While the savings from the 529 plans can be used to pay for tuition, as well as course fees, books, supplies and equipment at institutions of higher learning, only tuition counts as a qualified expense for 529 funds used at the K-12 level.
