Funds for the Mecklenburg Area Catholic Schools (MACS) needs based Tuition Assistance program are provided by the Parishes in the Charlotte Vicariate.
Funds are reserved for tuition costs and include Capital fees. They do not include instructional, transportation, activity, or graduation fees.
Grants do not cover the entire tuition cost. Families with registered full-time students in grades TK-12th grade are eligible to apply for tuition assistance.
The percentage of tuition assistance granted to families varies each year depending on the amount of documented need and the amount of funds available. Not all families who apply for tuition assistance qualify.

For students with certain disabilities, NCSEAA's ESA+ scholarship may be a great fit. ESA+ awards vary from $9,000 - $17,000 per school year and do not consider income.
We recommend new families interested in NCSEAA scholarships to apply before March 1. To review requirements and to apply, please visit https://www.ncseaa.edu/k12/.
