Saint Hilary School Tuition Assistance Options

Saint Hilary leverages all forms of aid available to our families. All families who wish to be considered for financial aid must apply to all three sources: The Saint Hilary Tuition Assistance Fund, Archdiocesan Family Grants and The BASIC Fund . Each type of aid has its process. Please read the descriptions below carefully:

Saint Hilary Tuition Assistance

Saint Hilary School and Parish offer tuition assistance to families who need some financial assistance in order to provide their children with a Catholic education. The Financial Assistance Committee looks at each family's needs on a case-by-case basis and awards are based on the assistance budget for the year, as well as the number of families in need. Saint Hilary uses the financial aid assessment and application in TADS in order to review each family's request. Therefore, you must complete the TADS application at in order to be eligible. The 2024-25 Financial Aid portal is now open in TADS.

Deadline: You must submit your TADS application at and the Saint Hilary Tuition Assistance Application by January 16, 2024, in order to be considered for financial aid for the upcoming 2024-25 school year. If you have not completed your 2023 tax return, please upload your most recent year's tax return (2022) and when you have your 2023 W-2s or 1099s in January you may upload them to your TADs account.

Notification: We will do our best to have your financial assistance package available when you are notified of your acceptance.

The BASIC Fund

Each family must also complete the application for The BASIC Fund for the 2024-25 school year. The application will be available in mid-January 2024. The BASIC Fund is a privately funded program whose mission is to broaden the educational opportunities for students by helping low-income families afford the cost of tuition at private schools in the Bay Area. The BASIC Fund is available for new students attending a private school for the first time only. Siblings already attending the school and not receiving the BASIC Fund can be included as long as one student in the family is attending a private school for the first time.

The program is available to students entering Kindergarten through Eighth Grade to attend private schools in Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Solano, and Sonoma Counties. The program provides scholarships to help families send their children to the private school of their choice. The BASIC Fund scholarships are awarded on the basis of financial need and the income eligibility requirements as follows:
