Grant & Aid Program (GAP)
Families seeking support for tuition are invited to apply for assistance through the Grant & Aid Program (GAP). The following information will help families navigate through the process.
- What is GAP and how does it work?
GAP stands for Newman Catholic Schools’ Grant & Aid Program and allows families to apply for tuition assistance. The process is safe and confidential. Awards are based on need and available resources.
- How is GAP funded?
GAP is funded through donations. NCS is blessed to have the support of generous benefactors who believe in supporting Catholic education. Currently GAP is funded through the Silent Cardinal Tuition portion of the Newman Cardinal Fund annual appeal, as well as, through support of the Two Eagles Foundation, and the Geisler Endowment Fund. Donations can be made towards NCS GAP by contacting the Advancement Office at 715-842-4805.
