Foremost, we would like to emphasize the importance of filling out a Catholic Education Foundation (CEF) application for tuition assistance for each of your children. Please apply for CEF funds every year, even if you feel you will not qualify. Applications are available in early February and are due in late March. Tuition is determined by personal income and economic situation.
