Tuition Assistance Program
Tuition Assistance Program
Diocesan and School financial aid programs may be available for families who qualify. While the primary responsibility for financing a student's Catholic education rests with the student's family, Christ the King Catholic School will make every effort to see that no child is denied access to a Catholic education based solely on lack of funds to pay tuition.
There are three types of Tuition Assistance available to Christ the King families: BASIC, FACE, and the CTK Children’s Fund.
- BASIC (Bay Area Scholastic Inner City) is an outside source available to all new students in Grades K-8 whose families qualify for the free/reduced hot lunch program and/or meet the income criteria set by Basic Fund. The Basic Fund application income criteria guidelines are strictly adhered to. Applications are available online only at http://www.basicfund.org/how-to-apply-english/ and must be filed by March 16, 2018.
- Diocese of Oakland FACE (Family Aid for Catholic Education) Grant is a Diocesan sponsored tuition assistance program available to all qualifying families requesting financial aid. A FACTS application is required and is due no later than March 16, 2018.
- The CTK Children’s Fund is tuition assistance sponsored by Christ the King Catholic School and is primarily available to students currently attending Christ the King. A FACTS application is required and is due no later than March 16, 2018.
FACTS application instructions:FACTS applications are available online only at https://online.factsmgt.com/signin/49NCY. Applications must include a copy of the family's most recent federal income tax return in order to verify the family's financial status and are due no later than March 16, 2018.

To equitably distribute the available CTK Children’s Funds, it is important that the Principal and Pastor have adequate information. Therefore, the school requires documentation of family financial resources in order to make determinations on applications for these funds.
In addition to a family's financial resources, the Principal and Pastor will consider any other relevant family circumstances in making determinations on applications.
The amount of assistance awarded will vary from family to family, and will depend upon the family's financial status, the family's particular circumstances and the amount of money the school has available for tuition assistance in a given year.
Christ the King School will not discriminate in the administration of its Tuition Assistance Program on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex or age in violation of existing state or federal laws or regulations.
All information regarding applications for Tuition Assistance will be held in strictest confidence by the Principal and Pastor. Parents are also expected to keep confidential the amount of any Tuition Assistance award that is given. Families will be notified of the determination made by the Principal on their request for a tuition grant, including the amount of any award for the upcoming school year by May 30, 2018.
