Tuition Assistance

Dear Parents, The window for 2018-19 Fulcrum Tuition Assistance Grant Program (TAP) applications are now open. Please take this opportunity in FACTS Management to apply earlier, before the super busy holiday months and school breaks.

As a reminder, submitting the application online is just the first step. All applicants must also provide supporting documentation, like tax forms and W-2’s. Applications can only be verified and processed once all necessary documentation is submitted.

It takes FACTS about 14 business days to process applications once paperwork is received, so the sooner it’s submitted, the better. The deadline for applications to be submitted and documents to be uploaded into FACTS is January 5th, 2018.

Accessing the Application Families can access the FACTS website either though the Fulcrum link at or through FACTS at for the financial aid application.

Either link to FACTS or Fulcrum will work – it all ultimately leads to the same application under Grants and Aid. Application Fee Each family will pay a $24 fee to FACTS to apply for Fulcrum tuition assistance. The $24 fee covers all applications for 1 year.

Please note that Fulcrum will not be reimbursing application fees any longer. Your $24 application fee for FACTS Grant and Aid covers your application for St. Thomas More’s local tuition assistance.

Grant Amounts For the 2018-19 academic year, Fulcrum grants for elementary students will be $1,200. Feel free to email or call with any questions or concerns.
