MACS Financial Aid Resources
Tuition Assistance Additional Information
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.

Other Financial Aid Opportunities
North Carolina offers two scholarship programs that help families afford our schools. Funds for these programs are limited, so new applicants are entered into a lottery where they have an equal chance of being selected. Families may apply to more than one program, as long as they meet the eligibility requirements of each.
Suitable for: parents who qualify based on income
Suitable for: parents of students with disabilities*
These two programs are available to meet the needs of students with disabilities: The Disabilities Grant and the Education Savings Account Program (ESA). Funds can be used to pay school tuition, as well as expenses such as speech therapy, tutoring services, and educational technology for families who home school their students.
*Student must have a North Carolina Individualized Education Program (IEP) dated within the last three years.
