Archdiocese of Detroit (AOD) Tuition Assistance Program
Through the generosity of donors to the Archdiocese of Detroit's Stewards for Tomorrow Campaign, an endowment fund was created to provide tuition assistance grants to the Archdiocese of Detroit's Catholic families. Each year, the Archdiocese makes awards to offset the K-12 tuition expenses for children of Catholic families who both reside within the Archdiocese of Detroit AND whose children attend Catholic schools located within the boundaries of the Archdiocese of Detroit.
The FACTS application, AOD Parent Information Letter and the required Pastor’s Signature Form are available below. The Parent Information Letter details the Archdiocese's process, deadline dates and other essential information. It is important to read this document in its entirety before you apply for tuition assistance from the Archdiocese.
