Caritas Scholars Program for New Students
Enroll Now for 2014-2015
Starting in the fall of 2013, St. Benedict School was fortunate to be selected to be part of a pilot financial assistance program through our relationship with the Archdiocese of Chicago and in conjunction with the launch of the Archdiocese's To Teach Who Christ Is Capital Campaign. The primary goal of awarding Caritas Scholars Awards is to provide need-based assistance to families who are committed to enrolling in our Catholic schools but who may need help in covering the cost of tuition and fees. The financial aid awards can cover up to 50% of tuition and are renewable for three years as long as a family qualifies for the assistance and they follow the commitments and responsibilities of accepting the financial aid. Anyone interested should call Mrs. Rys, the principal, at 708-385-2016. The deadline for applications is May 1, 2014.
