Tuition Assistance
Tuition Assistance   is available to families who wish to provide a Blessed Sacrament School education to their children but are unable to afford the full cost of the education. All assistance is offered on the basis of demonstrated need, and all assistance recipients must complete a Grant & Aid Application through FACTS Management Services to be eligible for tuition assistance. 

We strongly encourage Pre Kindergarten families to apply for the North Carolina Opportunity Scholarship in addition to their FACTS application. 

The transition from Pre Kindergarten to Kindergarten is the one time an existing school family may apply and be considered for the North Carolina Opportunity Scholarship.   

Blessed Sacrament Tuition Assistance Application is open and accepting applications for new and returning students.

North Carolina Opportunity Scholarship Application opens by early February, 2019.
