This fund has been established by eight parishes in southern Frederick County to aid families who wish their children to receive a faith-based elementary or high school education in Frederick County Catholic Schools.

Beginning in 2015, a distribution committee composed of representatives of each participating parish (rather than the individual parishes themselves), will be determining the awards on the basis of financial need. The distribution committee uses the FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment to conduct financial need evaluations. Families should apply through FACTS as in years past, making sure to indicate the school your child will attend, and the parish to which you belong.

We are grateful to the many parishioners in southern Frederick County who make a monthly offering for Catholic School Education to support this fund and assist young families desiring a faith-based education for their children.

Go to FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment to set up your account and begin. There is a $28 processing fee for this service. The deadline to file is usually the end of March. If you have questions, call 866-441-4637. You may also direct questions to our Parish Office or call 301.663.0907.
