CEF NEI Shea Tuition Awards (STA) - 2022-2023 Tuition Assistance Program

Did you hear?  In addition to donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to our HUGE school building renovations, the Shea Foundation has made another donation to the Catholic Education Foundation  (CEF) in the amount of $50,000,000!  This donation is for NEW families to our Catholic school system and can be almost 50% OFF TUITION!  So, if you know of a family who you think would be a wonderful addition to our #SJWKnightsFamily, but the only reason they are hesitating to apply is to cost of tuition, please pass this information along. 

Below are the requirements and attached are two other documents (Spanish and English) that share some of the income requirements for the
 Shea Tuition Awards (STA). This tuition assistance program is Tiered specifically for our school and are renewable each year as long as the applicant re-applies and qualifies each year.

Applicants must meet the following qualifications:
  • Student can be in grades TK through 8th.
  • Student cannot have been enrolled in an LA Archdiocese Catholic School during the Spring Semester of the 21-22 School Year.
    • If students were previously enrolled in a Catholic School they should be at least 1 semester removed from the LA Catholic School system.
    • Exceptions can be made if student was previously at another Catholic school that is not within a 20-mile radius of your school or if their previous catholic school has been closed.
  • Schools are discouraged from providing additional financial aid beyond the CEF Shea Tuition Award. (Sibling Discounts are acceptable).
    • However if additional aid is necessary, schools are asked to be conservative with their internal allocations.
  • Student's family income must not exceed the New Enrollment Initiative: Shea Tuition Award (STA) Income Guidelines. (See attachments)
THIS IS SO EXCITING!  Please share and let's grow our SJW Family together!
