Financial Assistance

We are not a private school but a “Catholic” one in its original meaning: universal, open to all regardless of race, religion, national and ethnic origin, and income. We strive to make Roanoke Catholic both available and affordable to all who aspire to our standards of academic excellence, familial values, and faith in the Gospel.

This year more than 82% of our students receive some form of funded tuition assistance made possible by our community of generous supporters who believe in our mission.

We are pleased to offer FACTS Payment Plans and Grant & Aid Financial Needs Assessment on the same platform.

If you have an existing Tuition Payment Plan through FACTS and have already created a user account, please sign in through the FACTS link on the home page (with the graduation cap).  If you are a New FACTS User please create a username & password through the FACTS link.
