Tuition & Financial Aid

Financing Your Child's Education

Saint Anthony Catholic School strives to maintain affordable tuition and fees by being responsible stewards of our resources and our families’ investments in their children’s education. We are committed to finding new and improved ways to help you achieve your goal of providing a well-rounded, faith-filled Catholic private school education for your children. 

Our tuition prices are competitive; for specific information and the latest rates, please contact our Bookkeeper, Daisy Tigreros. Families are also strongly encouraged to apply for scholarships and tuition assistance, which can potentially cover the entire cost of tuition.

Tuition Assistance and Financial Aid

In addition to a variety of payment options to help your family budget for your investment in your child’s private school education at Saint Anthony Catholic school, there are a number of opportunities to receive scholarships, grants, or other financial aid. We strongly encourage parents to explore all potential avenues to help finance their child’s education.

School-Based Assistance

Saint Anthony Catholic School offers a tuition assistance program. Please contact our bookkeeper for more information about school-based assistance.

Diocesan-based Assistance

The Catholic Schools Tuition Assistance Grant (CSTAG) is an income-based diocesan grant to help Catholic families with private school tuition costs. It is available to all students who are currently registered or have submitted an enrollment application. Qualified applicants must be baptized, practicing, and registered in a Catholic parish in the Diocese of St. Petersburg. Families should contact our bookkeeper for more information.

National Scholarships

The George and Mary Kremer Foundation assists eligible children by providing tuition grants to schools on behalf of qualified children rather than to individual families. The principals of the participating schools select the students to receive the Tuition Assistance Grants, based primarily on financial need, without regard to race, gender, nationality, citizenship, or religion.

State-Approved and State-Sponsored Tuition Assistance Scholarships

  • The AAA Scholarship is a state-approved, privately-funded need-based scholarship alternative to the Step-Up Students scholarship.
  • The McKay Scholarship is a state-sponsored scholarship reserved for children with various educational needs, as determined by their individual Educational Plan or 504 Plan.
  • The Step-Up for Students Scholarship is a state-approved, privately-funded income-based scholarship to cover tuition and other associated fees.
  • The Family Empowerment Scholarship is a state-sponsored scholarship for low-income and working-class families in Florida.

 

Saint Anthony Catholic School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in the administration of its education policies, admissions policies, scholarship programs, and athletic or other school-administered programs.

Privately-Sponsored Scholarships

The Mary C. Forbes Foundation provides need-based scholarships reserved for students within the Diocese of St. Petersburg who are active practitioners of the Roman Catholic faith. Limited applications are available to qualified applicants. The deadline for submission is April 14th for the following school year. 

Applications must be processed through Saint Anthony Catholic School, and are available through our bookkeeper.
