Affording your SJB Education

Affording a Catholic school education is possible for all families.  Some families may not consider Catholic education due to the cost of tuition. St. John the Baptist Catholic School believes that the cost of Catholic education should not be a deterrent to prospective families.  To do this, the school allocates money annually for tuition assistance into the operating budget. St. John the Baptist Catholic School assists many of our families to bridge the gap between what they can contribute financially and the actual cost of attending.

To assist families, St. John the Baptist Catholic School utilizes FACTS, a third party organization to analyze the financial situation of applicants on a spectrum of factors.  Applications for this process begin in January. For more information, please contact the school office at 503-654-0200.

Can I apply for tuition assistance?
Yes, families apply through FACTS. This process begins in January. Tuition assistance is only available for students in kindergarten through 8th grade.

How many SJB families were awarded tuition assistance this year? 21%

What is tuition assistance?
Tuition assistance is a grant given to qualifying families to offset the cost of tuition at SJB. The grant does not have to be repaid.

Who can apply?

Is tuition assistance automatically renewed?
No. Families must re-apply each year. Also, awards may be adjusted if family financial circumstances change significantly.

Which are some of the high schools that your students have attended upon graduation?
Upon graduation, the majority of our students attend La Salle Catholic College Preparatory. Other popular choices for students are St. Mary's Academy, Central Catholic High School, and Jesuit High School in Beaverton.
