We offer a variety of financial assistance programs through the Diocese of Joliet, including the Tuition Transfer Grant for students who are transferring from public, private (non-Catholic) schools. A few programs include:

Tuition Transfer Grant Program

St. Mary of Gostyn School would like to help more families in our community give their children the gift of a Catholic education. If your child is in grades 1 to 7 and currently attends a private (non-Catholic), public, charter or home school, we would like to offer your family a two-year grant.

Under this program, your child will receive a $1,000 tuition discount for the first year s/he is enrolled in St. Mary of Gostyn, and a $500 tuition discount for the second year s/he is enrolled in St. Mary of Gostyn.

This grant can be applied to each eligible student in your family who transfers from a private (non-Catholic), public, charter or home school.

Catholic Education Foundation (CEF) Scholarships

CEF distributes more than 1,600 need-based scholarships each year, with an average grant of $700 per students.
