Financial Aid

St. Leo Catholic School strives to meet the financial needs of families through affordable tuition rates and a tuition assistance program. Any student who is seeking financial assistance must first apply and be accepted to St. Leo Catholic School.  St. Leo works with FACTS Management, a third party Financial Aid Assessment company, to assess applications to ensure we are providing aid to families in need.  The initial deadline for the first round of consideration is March 15th. 

We encourage families of all faiths and backgrounds to apply. If you have any additional questions concerning financial aid, please call the school office. 

We also accept the NCSEAA Opportunity Scholarships provided by the state of North Carolina.
